In a press conference in Bosnia, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the international community should declare Islamophobia to be a crime against humanity. He stated that Turkey had led the way in the struggle against extremism, and it was time for the West to do its part to eliminate provocative material such as the recent Mohammed movie, which sparked violence last week across the Islamic world.
Meanwhile, violent protests against the movie spread to Indonesia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Philippines, Denmark, and parts of sub-Saharan Africa.
