The murder of the US Ambassador to Libya yesterday and a raucous protest in Cairo, all over a movie deemed offensive, recall the widespread violence during the Danish cartoon controversy.
Blizzard conditions shut down parts of I-40 and I-70 in New Mexico, Kansas, and Texas. At least six traffic fatalities were blamed on the snowstorm and high winds.

Clashes between police and demonstrators broke out overnight and carried through today at Cairo's Tahrir Square.
