Outrage at the release of the film 'Innocence of Muslims' has led to more protests across the Middle East, Africa, and Southeast Asia. So far, 20 countries have been affected by anti-US manifestations - leading to the deaths of four American consulate staff in Benghazi, and two further deaths of protesters in Tunis.
Moreover, the protests are no longer confined to anti-American sentiments: demonstrators in Sudan set fire to the German Embassy in Khartoum on Sunday. As such, the FCO has warned that further attacks on western interests are possible.
The controversial film that initially caused the outrage - 'Innocence of Muslims' - was reportedly made by Israeli-American Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, and has been condemned by religious leaders worldwide.
The FCO has amended its travel advice to British citizens in the countries affected. It advises against any travel to US embassies and the surrounding areas, and warns British nationals to keep a low profile and avoid all demonstrations.
