As Pakistanis burned Obama effigies and the U.S. flag to protest an anti-Islam film, the U.S. embassy in Pakistan released a video they hope will clarify the U.S. position and calm mounting tensions.

Pakistan shut down Friday in a government-sanctioned protest over a film made in the United States that mocks the Prophet Mohammad.

Protesters turned ugly and several hours of mayhem resulted in burnt property and almost 20 lives lost.

In Washington, Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar met U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday, and both pledged to work to overcome strains on everything from U.S. drone strikes to the future of Afghanistan policy.
