Protestors clash with police in the Pakistani capital, while thousands take to the streets in Lahore and Peshawar as outrage continues over the low-budget American film which insults the Prophet Mohammed.
Hundreds of protesters angered by a US-made film that mocks the Prophet Mohammed, tried to make their way to the U.S embassy in the Pakistani capital Islamabad but were stopped by a heavy contingent of police firing tear gas shells.
The protesters broke through barricades of shipping containers laid across the road by police, and entered the heavily-guarded Red Zone in a bid to reach the diplomatic enclave which houses the US embassy and other major foreign missions.
After several hours of stone-pelting by the protesters and heavy tear-gas shelling by police, the protesters were finally driven back. They set fire to at least three police check posts and tore down billboards along the roadside before dispersing.
Men, women and children marched in the eastern city of Lahore in a demonstration called the 'Magnificence of Mohammed Rally' organised by a religious group. Many protesters held placards with "Mohammed" written on them.
Several thousand people also protested in the north-western city of Peshawar in two separate demonstrations, one by the university students and the other by local traders.
