CAIRO - Al-Qaida's branch in North Africa is calling for attacks on U.S. diplomats and more protests against the anti-Islam video that was produced in the U.S.
Demonstrations have tapered off in nations such as Egypt and Tunisia, but protests have turned violent in Pakistan and Indian-controlled Kashmir.
There have also been rallies in Indonesia and Thailand. And insurgents in Afghanistan say a suicide attack that killed 12 today was in retaliation for the film.
The group called Al-Qaida in the Land of the Islamic Maghreb has released a statement praising the killing of Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya who died in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi a week ago.
