Denmark has called on its citizens residing in Lebanon to leave the country in light of violent anti-Denmark protests. Sunday morning, the Danish embassy in Beirut was set on fire by an angry mob. The protests, which are currently raging in Muslim communities worldwide, are a response to a Danish newspaper's publication of cartoons portraying the prophet Muhammed.
