WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama thanked Yemen's President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi on Thursday for condemning an attack on the US embassy and launching an investigation, the White House said.

Obama spoke by phone with Hadi in the wake of demonstrations at the US embassy compound in Sanaa, where protesters broke through the main gate, smashed windows and burned cars. The incident followed violent protests in Egypt and Libya, where the US ambassador was killed on Tuesday night.

Demonstrators were enraged by a US-made film they said insulted Islam.

"President Obama expressed appreciation for the cooperation we have received from the Yemeni government and underscored the importance of working together to ensure the security of US personnel going forward," the White House said in a statement.
