Muslims protest in Cardiff over Innocence of Muslims film


Around 100 Muslim protesters have held a demonstration in Cardiff. Organisers said they wanted a peaceful protest in "defence of the honour of the prophet Muhammad".

It follows other protests over the amateur video, Innocence of Muslims, in countries with Muslim populations for nearly two weeks.

The controversial video was made privately in the US but its anti-Islam message has been publicly condemned by US President Barack Obama.

The organiser of the rally in Cardiff's Queen Street Abu Hajar said they wanted to protest peacefully against what he called "crimes against Islam and Muslims".
