Anti-Islam film protests in Greece

Text size Aa Aa

Hundreds of Muslims took to the streets of Athens to protest against the so-called ‘anti-Islam’ film.

Authorities considered blocking the route to the US embassy, as angry people made their way towards the building.

Police clashed with protesters and used water to drive back the crowds.

A 14-minute segment of the low-budget movie called ‘The Innocence of Muslims’ was uploaded to Youtube. It depicts the Prophet Muhammad as a fraud, a womaniser and a child molester.

The movie is considered blasphemous and has caused violent protests in a number of countries including Egypt, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
