Protest over film kills one protester


 

Protests over Innocence of Muslims swelled in Pakistan with hundreds of people setting fire to a press club and government office. The clash killed one demonstrator.

The protesters first attacked the press club in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province’s Upper Dir district on Monday. They were angry that their protest hadn’t gotten more news coverage.

The police then charged the crowd, beating them with batons, and protesters set a government office on fire. Police say that many armed protesters have surrounded a local police station.

Along with the one fatality, many protesters have been wounded from fighting with police.
