CAIRO, Sept. 12 (Xinhua) -- An Egyptian ministerial meeting held Wednesday demanded the U.S. government show a clear-cut stance against a filmmaker whose movie they say has insulted the Muslim prophet.
The Egyptian government denounced the movie, whose production involved some Coptic migrants in the United States, as offensive to Prophet Mohammed and immoral.
The movie infuriated the Muslim communities worldwide and in particular sparked protests and assaults against the U.S. diplomatic missions in Egypt and Libya.
Earlier on Wednesday, U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens is confirmed to have died in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi due to suffocation as a result of smoke inhalation caused by the fire set by protesters on Tuesday night.
Also on Tuesday, several thousands of Egyptians protested in front of the U.S. embassy in Cairo. Some protesters pulled down the American flag, expressing their anger over the movie.
