Indian security forces have arrested 86 people after enraged protesters attempted to attack the US consulate in the port city of Chennai.


The arrests were made on Friday when thousands of protesters poured into the streets to condemn a blasphemous US-made video, which insults the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and depicts Islam as an oppressive religion.

The anti-Islam film has drawn condemnation from many countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Pakistan, Libya, Somalia and Sudan, as well as the Vatican in Rome.
