Now Lebanon reported:
Hundreds of Muslims protested on Wednesday outside the US consulate in Morocco’s largest city Casablanca to decry a film deemed insulting to Islam that already sparked deadly violence in Libya, an AFP photographer reported.
The protesters, numbering between 300 and 400 mostly young activists, gathered around 200 meters from the consulate amid a heavy police presence.
Some shouted anti-US slogans, including “Death to Obama!”, but without resorting to violence.
On Tuesday, US Ambassador to Tripoli Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Libyan city of Benghazi when an armed mob stormed the consulate, torching the building after looting it.
Protests also broke out in Gaza today.
