BEIRUT (AP) — The leader of Hezbollah has called for protests against an anti-Islam video starting on Monday and says protesters should not only 'express anger' at US embassies but urge leaders to act.

Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said Sunday that the Shiite militant group will organize demonstrations against the film in different parts of Lebanon.

In a televised speech, he called for an international agreement making it illegal to attack any divine religion.
