Friday, September 21, 2012


Apparently everyone but the Pakistani government knew this would happen when they called for nationwide protests on Friday.

Pakistani police opened fire on rioters who were torching a cinema during a protest Friday against an anti-Islam film, killing one man on a day declared by the government as a public holiday for people to demonstrate against the video.

Mohammad Amir, a driver for a Pakistani television station, was killed when bullets hit his vehicle in the northwest city of Peshawar, said Kashif Mahmood, a reporter for ARY TV who was also sitting in the car at the time. The TV channel showed footage of Amir at the hospital as doctors tried to save him. It also showed the windshield of the vehicle, shattered by several gunshots.
