High security alert in Belgium over fresh anti-Islam film

Belgium has raised security alert to level 3, the last but one level of alert in the country, after a terror threat warning was issued ahead of another anti-Islam film, mocking the Prophet Mohammed, local media reported Friday.

The Innocent Prophet was produced by Imran Firasat, a Pakistani living in Spain, and is said to depict the Islamic prophet in a negative light.

Mr. Firasat confessed he was inspired by the scandalous US-made film, The Innocence of Muslims, which had sparked riots in the Arab world, with crowds protesting outside American embassies. In Benghazi, Libya, heavily armed attackers killed the US ambassador.
