Hundreds of Muslims, many carrying placards and chanting "Down with America", rallied outside the United States (US) embassy in Bangkok on Tuesday, as protests over an anti-Islam film spread to the Thai capital. Defying heavy rain and a big police presence, around 400 protesters massed outside the US embassy, which was shut in advance of the rally, an AFP reporter said. The planned rally was part of a wave of often violent protest against a low-budget trailer for a movie entitled Innocence Of Muslims, believed to have been produced by a small group of extremist Christians in the US. Holding banners in Thai, Arabic and English and flags the crowd shouted "Down with America" and called for the director of the incendiary film to be punished.
