ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) -- The U.S. embassies in two countries that border Libya are warning of more protests, after attacks in neighboring Libya in which the U.S. ambassador and three embassy staff were killed.

The embassy in Tunisia is warning Americans there to avoid crowded places, saying that even gatherings that are “intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational.”

The embassy in Algeria says unspecified groups are using online social networks to organize demonstrations today “to protest a range of issues.”

The attack in Libya came hours after Egyptian protesters climbed the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, pulling down the American flag and temporarily replacing it with a black Islamic banner.
