Afghan protesters have taken to the streets for the fourth consecutive day to condemn a blasphemous anti-Islam film produced by an Israeli-American in the United States.


Angry people and university students gathered in the northern Konduz province on Tuesday to express their outrage against the insulting film that disrespects Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and depicts Islam as an oppressive religion.

Protesters chanted anti-American slogans and called on the US-led foreign forces to leave Afghanistan.

A similar demonstration was held on Monday in the capital Kabul, as about 1,000 protesters gathered outside the US embassy. The protest, however, turned violent after Afghan police opened fire to disperse the demonstrators.

Over the past days, thousands of protesters have held anti-US demonstrations across Afghanistan to voice their anger over the insulting film.

Demonstrations against the movie have been held across the Muslim world, with the protesters in some countries marching on the US embassies and torching the US flags.

Outrage and anti-US sentiment are growing across the Muslim world over the obscure movie that insults Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).

In Libya, angry protesters attacked the US consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi last week and set fire to the consulate building, while gunmen and security forces clashed.

The violence led to the killing of the US Ambassador Chris Stevens, two former Navy SEALs and a State Department worker.
