SANAA - Yemeni security forces blocked the streets surrounding the US embassy in Sanaa on Friday as demonstrators against a film deemed blasphemous to Islam gathered nearby, a day after the heavily fortified compound was stormed in protest at the film.

Around 20 to 30 people stood in a road to the north of the embassy, carrying signs saying "Anything but the Messenger of God", a Reuters witness said.

At least one person died and 15 were injured at Thursday's demonstration, which started as a peaceful march but quickly turned violent when protesters threw stones and signs before attacking the security offices and the compound.
