Hassan Nasrallah, head of Lebanon’s Shiite Hezbollah organisation, on Sunday called for protests across the country over a US-produced film mocking Islam that caused uproar across the Islamic world.

“The whole world needs to see your anger on your faces, in your fists and your shouts,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech.

He spoke just hours after Pope Benedict XVI left Lebanon following a historic three-day visit in which he prayed that Middle East leaders would work towards peace and reconciliation.
