BEIRUT - Thousands of Lebanese protesters chanting "Death to America, Death to Israel" marched through Beirut's Shi'ite southern suburbs on Monday in protest against a film made in the United States which mocks the Prophet Mohammad.

"America, hear us - don't insult our Prophet," chanted the marchers at the demonstration, called for by the leader of the Shi'ite Muslim group Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.



The peaceful protest, which came after a weekend of violent demonstrations across Arab capitals in which several US embassies were attacked, stayed well away from US mission on the city's northeastern outskirts.

It followed a three-day visit to Lebanon by Pope Benedict who used his trip to call for reconciliation between Muslims and Christians.
