Ban Ki-moon Condemns Anti-Islamic Video

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon of the United Nations condemned, Thursday, the American-made anti-Islamic amateur video that has been blamed for violent demonstrations around the Muslim world, resulting in four deaths each in Libya and Yemen.

A spokeswoman for Ban said the U.N. leader called the film "hateful" and was "deeply disturbed" by the resulting violence. She added, "Nothing justifies such killings and attacks."
