What Set Off the Violence?

After a movie by Israeli-American filmmaker Sam Bacile was translated into Arabic, news of its controversial message spread quickly over the Internet and sparked extreme anger. 

The film depicts Islam's Prophet Muhammad having sex, talking about killing children and refers to a donkey as "the first Muslim animal."
