UPDATE: Calm returns to Muslim cities
CAIRO (AP) - Calm is returning today to most cities around the Muslim world a day after at least six people were killed in a wave of angry protests over an anti-Islam film.
Egyptian police have cleared out protesters who have been clashing with security forces for the past four days near the U.S. Embassy in Cairo.
Security forces erected a concrete wall blocking the main street leading to the embassy in Cairo after finally dispersing several hundred youths who had been battling with police, trying to get to the building. They also cleared nearby Tahrir Square where protests were being held.
Riot police in Sydney, Australia used pepper spray as they clashed today with about 200 protesters.
Muslims angry over the film produced in the U.S. took the streets yesterday in more than 20 countries from the Mideast to Southeast Asia.
