KABUL Hundreds of Afghan protesters took to the streets on Friday, setting fire to an effigy of US President Barack Obama and demanding the death of a film-maker who they say insulted the Prophet Mohammed.
The demonstration in Nangarhar province, which borders Kabul to the west and Pakistan to the east, saw clerics in the Shinwari tribe call for a $100,000 bounty on the head of the producer of the film, "Innocence of Muslims".
An Obama effigy was also torched, said Zaher Ali, deputy chief of Ghanikhail district's council of clerics, but the protest passed off peacefully and fears about demonstrations in the capital Kabul were not realised.
"Death to America", and "death to the enemies of Islam", shouted the crowd, according to an AFP photographer, in what are fairly routine chants at anti-US protests in Afghanistan.

They are racists!!!!
At least they are burning the right boogie-man!
Tell me again what was gained by Democratizing these ignoramuses. They are too stupid to vote.
I’m not sure what 8 militants surrendering in Saudi Arabia means in regards to Afghanistan but it is different.
Hey Obama and idiot Carney are you reading this. They don’t hate the movie, they hate Obama.
I don’t know what to make of it but I guess they’re off the list and Interpol will stop searching for them.
I can’t imagine 8 would turn themselves in unless they knew it would be a catch and release.
Catch and release in Saudi Arabia? Catch and release their heads with a sword maybe.
Burn Baby Burn! ! ! !
