"Al Qaeda urges Muslims across the world to kill U.S. diplomats as violent protests spread to Australia" Daily Mail, September 15, 2012
- Anger among the global Islamic community over the movie produced in the U.S. that mocks the Prophet Mohammed spreads to Australia
- Police clash with hundreds of protestors in the busy centre of Sydney - Australia's largest city
- Police used pepper spray against the protesters, who chanted 'Obama, Obama, we love Osama' and waved placards saying 'Behead all those who insult the Prophet.'
As anti-American riots spread to Australia, Al Qaeda urged Muslims to step up protests and kill more U.S. diplomats in Muslim countries in response to the U.S.-made film which mocks the Prophet Mohammed.
The terror group made the appeal as riot police clashed with about 200 protesters at the U.S. Consulate in Sydney on Saturday as demonstrations against the anti-Islam film 'Innocence of Muslims' spread across the world.
An Al Qaeda statement said; 'Whoever comes across America's ambassadors or emissaries should follow the example of Omar al-Mukhtar's descendants (Libyans), who killed the American ambassador,' the group said, referring to Tuesday's attack on the U.S. consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi.
