Riot police in Islamabad fired tear gas and also live rounds as the protesters tried to break into the diplomatic area, where the US embassy is located.
In Yemen, demonstrators chanted anti-US slogans on the streets of the capital Sanaa.
Security forces seemed better prepared than a week earlier, when several US embassies were attacked. Riot police in Sanaa blocked approaches to the US embassy.

An effigy of US President Barack Obama was burnt by Muslims in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Palestinians demonstrated outside the Dome of the Rock at the al-Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem's Old City.
In Egypt, dozens of people held a peaceful rally in the capital Cairo. Riot police kept the protesters away from the area around the US embassy to avoid last week's violence.
In Tanzania's biggest city, Dar es Salaam, thousands of people gathered for a peaceful protest after Friday prayers. They held up slogans against the US and Israel and called for the US embassy to be removed. (Photo: Zahir Abbas Panjwani)
