Protests against 'Innocence of Muslims' film

Innocence of Muslims is an anti-Islam film, excerpts of which were posted on YouTube. The film was reworked from "Desert Warrior", a running title and script without any religious references - and then dubbed over. Violent protests against the film broke out on September 11 in Egypt and Libya. The protests spread to Yemen and other Arab and Muslim nations over the following days and included attacks on U.S. consulates and embassies.
