In Libya, Islamic extremists killed the American ambassador as they stormed the American consulate in Benghazi in anger against the little known film by an amateur American filmmaker, deemed offensive to Islam and the Prophet Mohammad. Protests followed in Egypt, Yemen and Iran. UPI/Ahmed Jomaa

Palestinians burn American and Israeli flags during a demonstration against a controversial film mocking Islam, in Gaza City, on September 14, 2012. The low-budget movie, which ridicules the Prophet Muhammad and portrays Muslims as immoral and gratuitously violent, has triggered violent protests in several Middle East countries. United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reiterated that the U.S. government had nothing to do with making the film. UPI/Ismael Mohamad | License Photo
