The US government had nothing to do with a film about the Prophet Mohammad that has triggered anti-American protests in Muslim countries, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Thursday.
The film, apparently produced in the United States, sparked an attack on a US mission in Libya on Tuesday that killed the ambassador and three other Americans. Clips posted on the Internet show an amateurish production portraying the Prophet Mohammad as a womanizer, a homosexual and a child abuser.
“The United States government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its content and message,” Clinton said at the start of talks with senior Moroccan officials in Washington.
“To us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose: to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage.”
