British Muslim activists are to demonstrate in London against the anti-Islam movie.

Hundreds of Muslims are to demonstrate in London to express their "solidarity" with others across the world, as anger over the blasphemous US-made movie spreads also into the British Muslim community. Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain has organized the protest, which will take place outside the US embassy in the UK capital on Sunday September 16. "The demonstration will be condemning in the strongest possible terms any and all insults against Islam and the symbols of our religion; especially those against the greatest man sent to mankind the Prophet Mohammad, peace be upon him," said a group statement. Earlier on September 14, a flag-burning protest was held in front of the US mission in Grosvenor Square, London, in which the demonstrators chanted "burn burn USA" and set an American flag on fire. As the protests against the anti-Islam movie spread, non-essential United States government personnel are said to be evacuating from Sudan and Tunisia due to fears of mass demonstrations occurring outside American embassies. Meanwhile, on Saturday September 15, hundreds of people marched in the streets of Antwerp, Belgium, in order to protest against the sacrilegious movie. Furthermore, Australian police clashed with around 200 protestors on the same day, outside the US consulate in Sydney, Australia. The anti-US protests were triggered on Tuesday September 11, after the blasphemous video led to an attack on the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi, where the US ambassador and three other Americans were killed.
