Topic: Anti-Islam movie protests
MOSCOW, September 17 (RIA Novosti)
About 50 police were injured in violent demonstrations in Kabul on Monday over a recent U.S.-made film considered anti-Islamic, according to Afghan news outlet Khaama Press.
The demonstration began at 6 a.m. in the region of Puli-Charkhi, with rioters tossing stones at police and at a regional NATO base. No serious injuries were reported.
The Kabul protest was part of a larger series of demonstrations across the Muslim world against "Innocence of Muslims," a 14-minute film trailer released last week on YouTube which portrays Muslims and the Prophet Muhammad in a negative light.
Mass demonstrations had earlier broken out in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and Sudan, among other predominantly Muslim countries.
U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens was killed, along with three colleagues, when rioters attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on September 11.

Ukraine has not preserved its 1991 borders. The signing of the Geneva memorandum on April 17 reaffirmed the willingness of Russia, the United States and EU countries to reach a compromise. While the sides continue to trade tough talk and symbolic sanctions, the Kremlin and the White House are also holding a parallel dialogue on the coordinated geopolitical revision of Eastern Europe.
