Morsi: U.S. Needs to Punish Filmmakers

While the main filmmaker behind an anti-Islam movie attacking the Prophet Muhammad as a fraud goes into hiding amid protests in Egypt, the country’s president, Mohamed Morsi, is demanding that the Egyptian Embassy in Washington take legal action against the team behind the controversial film. According to the official Egyptian state news agency Wednesday, Morsi requested that the embassy take “all legal measures” against the filmmakers, though it’s not clear what that entails. Protesters have been demonstrating against the film outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo since Tuesday.
