A new wave of violence hit Pakistan on Friday as demonstrators battled with police over the now-infamous anti-Islam video made by a filmmaker in the U.S. The surge comes as Pakistani authorities encouraged peace and declared Friday a "Day of Love for the Prophet Muhammad." In Peshawar, rioters set fire to two cinemas and clashed with police who had to scatter them with tear gas. In Islamabad, protesters torched a toll both. At least five demonstrators were wounded and one killed.
