After 15 people were killed in Pakistan on Friday during protests over the anti-Muslim film Innocence of Muslims, the country's railway minister Ghulam Ahmed Bilour offered a bounty of $100,000 for the death of the maker of the movie. "I invite the Taliban brothers and the al Qaeda brothers that they should join me in this sacred mission. Along with others, they should also join in the good work," he said. A spokesman for the prime minister said the government has disassociated itself from Bilour's call to action.
