Violent protests spreads to Yemen – Barbara Starr on concerns for where it could escalate

In Yemen, police have been driving out protestors who breached a security wall on Thursday at the American Embassy. CNN’s Barbara Starr says “Its not miles. It’s a short walking distance” from the main gate to vital parts of the compound. Starr adds, however that “everything within that compound is fortified and has layers of security around it.”

With rapid videos of protests appearing online Starr questions the impact of social media on other possible protestors around the world. “As these pictures are seen around the world, what will be the reaction in other countries? Will it spark other protests? Will this give people who want to cause trouble that momentum to get involved in protests perhaps against U.S. installations? These things have a very…real way of growing through the social media.”
