BEIRUT - The head of Lebanon's Shi'ite terrorist group Hezbollah on Sunday called for nationwide protests against a film mocking the Prophet Mohammad, saying the United States must be held accountable for the Internet video. Western embassies across the Muslim world remained on high alert and the United States urged vigilance after days of anti-American violence.

"We call for protests tomorrow in the southern suburbs (of Beirut) at 5 o'clock," Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised speech.
