NBC News — Thousands marched against an obscure anti-Islam internet video in the Iraqi city of Basra friday. The massive protest comes a day after a similar protest was held in Baghdad.
The protesters chanted "Down with the U.S.A." and also burned an American and Israeli flag. Protests first broke out in the region on tuesday after rumors spread that the United States was going to play nationwide the anti-Muslim Youtube video as part of 9-11 commemorations.
