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.
A Pakistani minister offered $100,000 (£61,600) on Saturday for the death of an online filmmaker.
US Embassies across the Muslim world have come under attack and a US school in Tunisia set on fire in protests against the anti-Islam film.
Protests against the anti-Islam film continue to spread with the US embassy in Yemen stormed, while protests continue in Egypt and Iraq.
