(AP) Indonesians enraged over a film that denigrates the Prophet Muhammad continue to hold protests, while the U.S. Consulate in the country's third-largest city shut its doors for a second day.


About 50 students from an Islamic university gathered Thursday in Makassar, the capital of South Sulawesi province. They burned tires and forced a McDonald's restaurant to close. The door was later covered with a sign saying, "This must be closed as a symbol of our protest of the 'Innocence of Muslims' made in the U.S."


Meanwhile, The U.S. Consulate in Medan, the capital of North Sumatra province, was closed for a second straight day.


The U.S. Embassy issued a notice to American citizens saying all of its missions in Indonesia would be closed Friday, when bigger protests are expected.
