BEIRUT - Supporters of the Shi'ite militant group Hezbollah are set to hit the streets of Beirut on Monday after its leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah called for protests against a film that portrays the Prophet Mohammad as a womanizer and a fool.

Lebanon has already seen protests over the Internet video in the mainly Sunni Muslim city of Tripoli. One person was killed and 14 wounded in clashes with security forces on Friday after Islamist protesters set fire to a US fast food restaurant.

Nasrallah, who heads the largest armed force in Lebanon, has the ability to muster huge numbers of Shi'ite Muslims in the Mediterranean state of 4 million people.
