on social media

The
Prosecutor General’s office said Monday it will ask the courts to
outlaw the “Innocence of Muslims” film as “extremist and offending
believers.” The office said it already has urged leading Internet
providers to prevent its spread across the web.

The privately
produced American-made movie ridiculing Islam has triggered violent
protests against U.S. embassies and other targets in several countries
in the Middle East and beyond.

The Russian prosecutors’ move
reflects the Kremlin’s fears that the film could foment unrest among
Russia’s Muslims, who make up the majority of the population in many
provinces.
