Crowds protested in Kabul on Monday, the latest Muslim-world demonstration in an outpouring of anti-American sentiment, as the militant group Hizbullah called for more unrest. Hassan Nasrallah, leader of the militant group based in Lebanon, said that Muslims “would not be silent in the face of this insult.” Police officials in Afghanistan said 3,000 to 4,000 demonstrators marched in the capital city Monday and succeeded in burning some police cars, but were mostly contained by security forces. “We will defend our prophet until we have blood across our bodies,” one protester told reporters. “Americans will pay for their dishonor.”
