CAIRO, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- The Arab League (AL) denounced the armed assault on the U.S. consulate in Libya's Benghazi Tuesday night which killed the U.S. ambassador and other three employees, Egypt's official news agency MENA reported Thursday.
AL General Secretary Nabil al-Arabi expressed in a statement his complete opposition to such violent acts, adding they distort the image of Islam which call for tolerance, peace and love. He extended his deepest condolences to the U.S. president and people for this painful incident.
Meanwhile, he asked the Washington to show a clear-cut stance against those responsible for producing the movie offensive to the Prophet Mohammed, in accordance with the international accords which criminalize acts which stir seditions and disdain religions.
The insulting movie "Innocence of Muslims," produced in the United States, portrays Muslims as immoral and humiliates Prophet Mohammed, and is the trigger of a series of protests in the Arab world over the past two days.
For the third day, Egyptian protesters surrounded the U.S. embassy in Cairo to express anger for the movie.
