California man linked to anti-Islam film held without bond

A California man linked to an anti-Islam film that stoked violent protests across the Muslim world has been held without bond at his bail hearing in Los Angeles, Reuters has reported.

The presiding judge cited Nakoula Basseley Nakoula's "pattern of deception" and said the 55-year-old could be a flight risk.

Nakoula has been under investigation by probation officials looking into whether he violated the terms of his 2011 release from prison on a bank fraud conviction while making the film.
