Nakoula Basseley Nakoula held for violating probation

A man linked to an anti-Islam video that sparked riots across the Muslim world has been held without bail after a hearing in Los Angeles, California.

A judge said Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was a flight risk and cited a pattern of deception when making his ruling, Reuters news agency reported.

He is under investigation to see if he has violated the terms of his probation following release from prison in 2011 for bank fraud.

Alastair Leithead reports from Los Angeles.
