BEIRUT (AP) — Lebanese security officials say one person has been killed and 25 wounded after clashes between police and protesters over a film that denigrates the Prophet Muhammad.

The officials said a crowd angry over the film set fire Friday to a KFC and an Arby's restaurant. They then clashed with police.

The security officials said police opened fire, killing one of the attackers.

Twenty-five people were wounded in the melee, including 18 police who were hit with stones and glass. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not allowed to brief the media.
