Global Muslim Protests -- PICTURES

September 13, 2012

Below are scenes of protests in Egypt, Israel, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, Yemen, and other countries where demonstrators are voicing opposition to an anti-Islamic film, Innocence of Muslims.

Many of the protests have so far centered on U.S. embassies. At the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in an attack during protests on Sept. 11. However, the violence has also spurred counterprotests in some countries.

LIBYA: Protesters watch fires in Ansar al-Shariah Brigades compound, after hundreds of Libyan civilians, military, and police raided the base, in Benghazi on Sept. 21. The attack that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans 10 days earlier has sparked a backlash among frustrated Libyans against the heavily armed gunmen, including Islamic extremists, who run rampant in their cities. More than 10,000 people poured into a main boulevard of Benghazi, demanding that the militias disband — something Libya's weak central government has been unable to achieve.(AP photo/Mohammad Hannon)
