Hundreds of Palestinians staged a sit-in demonstration in Ramallah on Monday, in protest of the the anti-Islam film, Innocence of Muslims, which has sparked riots and protests across the Muslim world, AFP reported.

The protest in Ramallah, organized by the Palestinian Authority's Waqf (religious endowment), followed similar protests held by Israeli Arabs and Palestinians in Gaza over the weekend.



Protesters held signs with slogans reading, "We are against those who oppose you Mohammed" and "Do not touch our Prophet."

PA Waqf Minister Mahmoud Habbash spoke at Monday's protests calling on the US to apologize for the film and remove it from the Internet.
