Anti-Islam Film: Protesters in Kano burn US flag

A large crowd of protesters took over Kano streets earlier today to protest the US made low budget film that portrayed Prophet Mohammed in a bad light.
The rally which began in the Fagge area of Kano was organized by the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, a pro-Iran shite group.
The protesters sang anti-US and Isreali songs while marching through the city of Kano from a mosque in Fagge eventually ending the protest at the palace of the Emir Kano where they burnt the American flag before dispersing peacefully.
Heavily armed Nigerian troops kept a watchful eye on the protesters throughout the march.
