More than 2,000 Muslims marched through Bangladesh's capital Friday to protest Israel's air strikes in Lebanon, denouncing the Jewish state and burning its flag, police said. Protesters from the hard-line Islamic Constitution Movement burned the Israeli and American flags and shouted "Down with Israel's aggression" and "Stop killing Muslims," a police official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, in line with official policy. No violence was reported, he said. Earlier Friday, members of the Islamic Constitution Movement joined protesters from half a dozen hard-line groups on a protest march through the streets in front of Dhaka's main Baitul Mokarram mosque. They demanded the government present a censure motion to Parliament to condemn the attacks, Mohammad Maksusdur Rahman, a protester from the Islamic Constitution Movement, said.
