   Several dozen protesters briefly stormed the U.S. Embassy compound in Tunisia’s
   capital, tearing down the American flag and raising a flag with the Muslim
   profession of faith on it as part of the protests. Protesters also set fire to and
   looted an American school adjacent to the embassy compound and prevented
   firefighters from approaching it. The school appeared to be empty and no injuries
   were reported.                                                                                               The ladies of the Red Sox strut

   including stone-throwing protesters who clashed with police, according to an
   Associated Press reporter on the scene. Police responded with gunshots and tear
   gas. Police and protesters held running battles in the streets of Tunis. Amid the
   unrest, youths set fire to cars in the embassy parking lot and pillaged businesses
   nearby.

   other injuries. Embassy officials did not respond to calls and emails.
