Islamists torch Lebanon KFC restaurant over film

Islamists torch Lebanon KFC restaurant over film

A crowd of 300 Islamists attacked and set fire to a KFC restaurant in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli on Friday, angered over a US-made film that mocks Islam.

The attack on the US fast-food chain's outlet came as Pope Benedict XVI arrived in Lebanon for a three-day visit, calling for Christian-Muslim coexistence and attacking religious extremism.
