(NECN) - Demonstrations and protests are turning violent in many areas of the Middle East, after an anti-Muslim video posted on YouTube went viral on the internet.

The attacks in Libya at the U.S. Consulate resulted in the deaths of four Americans - including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

U.S. politicians are condemning the outbreak of violence.

On Thursday, angry protesters stormed the grounds of the U.S. Embassy in Yemen, chanting "Death to America" while burning the American flag.

Peter Krause, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Boston College, joined "The Morning Show" to discuss the uprisings and the political impact here in the U.S.
