In meetings and press conferences, everyone is talking about Syria and discussing possible solutions to the ongoing crisis. Egyptian President Morsi, along with Foreign Minister Kamel Amr, held talks with the Iranian, Turkish and French Foreign Ministers, touching on the increasing number of refugees, the fate of Bashar Al Assad and the "contact group," consisting of Egypt, Iran, Turkey and Saudi Arabia who have both influence and interest in the outcome of the crisis in Syria.

Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in Cairo Tuesday, September 11, 2012, shouting anti-American and anti-Israeli slogans along with "there is no God but Allah," and scaling the US Embassy's walls to pull down the American flag. The protests come in response to an inflammatory trailer to a film called "The Innocence of Islam," posted on youtube, which reportedly depicts the prophet Mohammed as a homosexual pedophile. While people's anger in Egypt propelled them to protest at the US embassy in Cairo, in Libya, enraged mobs attacked the US consulate in Benghazi. The US Ambassador to Libya and three staff members were killed during the attack. In this exclusive video, interviews with local Egyptians and protesters illustrate their religious sentiment, for a full transcription click here.

8:15: "I am Sabir Shartout from Giza, and when I heard about the protest I was one of the first people to confirm my attendance-- it's the least one can do. It is a protest to express the people's anger. This situation is in need of investigation. To those who insulted the prophet: he is the greatest symbol of Islam and he is the root of existence for all Muslims, for all Muslims are alive to love their God and their Prophet. It is really hard and painful for our people and people like us to have to go through those situations. Do we, as people, really deserve this insult? As Muslim, do we really deserve this humiliation? Someone has insulted a symbol, a great symbol that gives meaning to my whole life, and that is the Prophet Mohamed (PBUH). Why are they doing this?"

After the Tunisian Minister of Education Abdul Latif Obaid deducted 100 dinars (63$) from the wages of junior high school teachers who protested in May, the General Union of Tunisian Workers organized a demonstration with many of the teachers and trade unionists from different parts of the Republic.
