Afghan protesters in the capital, Kabul, have once again held a demonstration to condemn a blasphemous anti-Islam film produced in the United States.


The furious demonstrators took to the streets on Thursday, chanting anti-US slogans.

They also called for the trial of those behind the production of the sacrilegious movie and demanded that the government break all diplomatic ties with Washington.

On Wednesday, about 1,000 angry people and university students in the eastern province of Nangarhar expressed their outrage against the film that insults Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

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

The US-made movie has sparked angry demonstrations not only in Afghanistan, but all across the Muslim world.

Protesters demand that Washington apologize to the Muslim world over the film, which was reportedly financed by more than 100 Zionist Jews.

Meanwhile, similar demonstrations are expected to increase in the coming days following a French magazine’s publishing of insulting cartoons of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) on Wednesday.

France has increased security around its embassies after the publication of the cartoons, and announced it will close 20 of its embassies in Muslim countries on Friday.

Also on Wednesday, the French Muslim Council (CFCM), the main Islamic body in France, accused the French Charlie Hebdo satirical weekly of firing up anti-Muslim sentiments.
