Scores injured as anti-film protests continue

Scores of people were injured today in a clash in Bangladesh's capital between police and hundreds of demonstrators, as protests continued in the Muslim world against a film produced in the US that denigrates Islam's Prophet Mohammed.

In Pakistan, where more than 20 people died yesterday in clashes with police in different cities, a Cabinet minister offered a 100,000 US dollar reward for the death of the filmmaker.

Railways Minister Ghulam Ahmad Balor said he would pay the reward out of his own pocket.
