Mass anti-cartoon rally in Beirut

Hundreds of thousands of Shia Muslims in Lebanon have turned a religious ceremony into a protest over cartoons satirising the Prophet Muhammad. The leader of the Hezbollah militant group told the crowd demonstrations must continue until Europe passed laws banning insults to Muhammad. While the crowds in Beirut chanted "Labayka Ya Rasoul Allah" - At your service, oh Mohammad, at your service, oh Prophet of God. Tags: , ,
