Afghan Militants Breach U.S. Base

Afghan militants armed with rocket propelled grenades managed to break into a main U.S. Marine base in Afghanistan Friday, killing two and wounding an unknown amount. A spokesman says the attack may still be ongoing and that there has been major damage done to buildings, an aircraft hangar, and military jets. According to a NATO spokesman, Prince Harry was on the base at the time of the attack but was "never in any danger." Meanwhile, from Yemen to Sudan, the number of killed and wounded from demonstrations in front of American embassies grows after an anti-Islam movie sparked furor in Muslim countries. It is not yet clear if the attack is related.
