Anti-Islam film: Pakistan minister's bounty on producers

A government minister on Pakistan has offered a $100,000 (£61,600) reward for the death of the maker of an anti-Islam film produced in the US.

Railways Minister Ghulam Ahmad Bilour called on the Taliban and al-Qaeda to take part in what he called a "sacred duty", saying he would pay the bounty out of his own pocket.

The Pakistani government has condemned the remarks and suggested it may take action against Mr Bilour.
