Hezbollah Urges New Lebanon Protests over Anti-Islam Movie
Hezbollah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah has called for new protests in Lebanon over a movie thought to be offensive to Muslims, the BBC reported. The head of the Lebanon-based Shia Muslim militant group said Muslims "would not be silent in the face of this insult,” as quoted by the British broadcaster.
U.S. diplomatic missions in Egypt, Yemen and Libya were attacked last week over the film, "Innocence of Muslims,” which mocks Islam and Prophet Muhammad. Hundreds of people were injured in clashes with police, and about 20 were killed, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. Protests at many U.S. embassies have been continuing.
Clashes between protesters and police in Pakistan reportedly left one person killed on Sunday. (...)
