Hundreds Arrested in Egypt

In Tahrir Square in Egypt, one of the birthplaces of the Arab Spring, hundreds were arrested by riot police amid demonstrations to have the American ambassador tossed from the country. Meanwhile, police have beefed up security around the American Embassy in Paris after protests Saturday during which 150 people were detained. Both plainclothes officers and uniformed police will help increase security around the embassy, police officer Pierre Coric told The Associated Press. Relatively small-scale protests in Paris and Australia reflected continuing unrest in the Muslim world Saturday, and 1,000 people protested at the U.S. embassy in London on Sunday as American embassy officials withdrew from the capitals of Tunisia and Sudan.
