(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Angry Muslims in Mauritania have taken to the streets in the capital, Nouakchott, to protest against a US-made movie insulting Islam.
Following the Friday prayers, people from various mosques across the city marched to the US embassy in Nouakchott in a move to voice their outrage at the blasphemous American film.
The demonstrators held the US administration responsible for the sacrilegious film as Washington has failed to take any appropriate action against its producers.
Meanwhile a similar demonstration was staged in the Kenyan coastal city of Mombasa. Demonstrators in the African country shouted anti-American slogans and set fire to the US flag.
The Muslim world is outraged at the US for the blasphemous video, which insults the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and depicts Islam as an oppressive religion.
Protests have also erupted in several other countries including Egypt, Iran, Libya, Tunisia, Sudan, Indonesia, Malaysia and Pakistan in response to the sacrilegious film.
