BEIRUT - Lebanon's Shi'ite militant group Hezbollah condemned a US-made film about the Prophet Mohammad on Wednesday, which triggered violent protests in Libya and Egypt, as an attack on religious belief which it said reflected Western policy.

In a statement which made no reference to the killing of US diplomats in Libya in apparent response to the film, Hezbollah said the film was an "immoral act which represents the highest degree of aggression against the highest human right ... for respect of beliefs and sanctifies".



The film aimed to stir tensions and hatred between Muslims and Copts in Egypt and reflected "the true position of the American-Zionist alliance towards Islam and Muslims", it said.

"In this context, the statements of official US condemnation no longer fool anyone," Hezbollah said, referring to official US criticism of the film.
