Marines Arrive in Yemen, Bomb Threats at U.S Schools
The U.S. Marines have arrived in Yemen following an attack there on the U.S. embassy.
Closer to home, bomb threats at University of Texas and North Dakota State University have led to evacuations.
Rhonda Weldon, the school’s director of communications, said the university received a call about 8:35 a.m. from a man claiming to be affiliated with Al Qaeda. The man said he'd placed bombs all over the campus that would detonate in 90 minutes.
There have also been attacks on embassies in Tunisia and Sudan.
The protests are rapidly escalating around the world. The U.S. has now identified Nakoula Basseley Nakoula as the a self-described Coptic Christian, as the key figure behind the anti-Muslim film that sparked the protests. He is on federal probation in California for bank fraud and the Probation Department confirms they are reviewing his case to see if he violated his probation. One of the terms was he could not use the internet. Authorities say he is "a self-described Coptic Christian."
