BREAKING: Violent Protests Against Anti-Islamic Film

September 12 - Violent protests have sprung up across the Muslim world in response to an amateurish and offensive video portraying Muslims and Mohammed as cartoonishly vile. The most violent protest was in Benghazi, Libya, and claimed the life of the US ambassador, Chris Stevens, as well as three other embassy staff. This issue touches on human rights to freedom of expression, rights to life and security, and freedom of religion. Protests in Egypt, Tunisia, and Morocco--all featured in this playlist--were destructive but not violent, and generally centered around burning American flags, raising Muslim flags, and chanting slogans. The riot in Libya, however, included a coordinated mob using heavy weaponry, including rocket launchers. In fact, it was coordinated to an extent where US officials are investigating whether it was the pre-meditated plan of a group who merely used the offensive film as a pretext. http://world.time.com/2012/09/12/death-and-the-american-ambassador-what-happened-in-benghazi/ http://www.businessweek.com/ap/2012-09-12/obama-condemns-attack-that-killed-us-ambassador
