Hundreds Arrested in Egypt

    Protesters clash with French Gendarmerie near the US embassy in Paris, on September 15, 2012, during a demonstration against the anti-Islam film produced in the United States. One hundred people were arrested today in Paris, suspected of having taken part in a demonstration near the American Embassy and the Ministry of Interior, a police source told AFP. The anti-American demonstrations, sometimes fatal, have proliferated across the Muslim world after the release of excerpts from an Islamophobic film, "Innocence of Muslims," which describes Islam as a "cancer".

    In Tahrir Square in Egypt, one of the birthplaces of the Arab Spring, hundreds were arrested by riot police amid demonstrations to have the American ambassador tossed from the country. Meanwhile, police have beefed up security around the American Embassy in Paris after protests Saturday during which 150 people were detained. Both plainclothes officers and uniformed police will help increase security around the embassy, police officer Pierre Coric told The Associated Press. Relatively small-scale protests in Paris and Australia reflected continuing unrest in the Muslim world Saturday, and 1,000 people protested at the U.S. embassy in London on Sunday as American embassy officials withdrew from the capitals of Tunisia and Sudan.
