Brother of Al Qaeda Leader al-Zawahiri Talks About Call for Anti-American Protests
Fox News correspondent Leland Vittert reported live from Cairo, Egypt on the growing violence spreading across the Middle East. In Beirut, Lebanon the leader of Hezbollah made a rare public appearance to call for continued protests, as well-armed militia men chanted back, “death to America.”
The protests began last Tuesday, when organizers tore down the American flag at the US Embassy in Cairo in reaction to a film insulting the Prophet Muhammad. Organizing the crowd was Muhammed al-Zawahiri, a convicted jihadist and brother of Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri.
Vittert sat down with Muhammed al-Zawahiri in an exclusive interview about the protests. Al-Zawahiri has not seen the movie and yet he continues to call for protests. He told Vittert, “I read about the movie. It’s merely the title. It’s refused by us. If the Egyptian people saw this movie, the protests would explode.”
