Here is the news in VOA Special English. I’m Laura Bowman in Washington.

Al-Qaeda in Yemen is calling for more violence against American embassies. This follows days of deadly protests against an anti-Islamic video that was made in the United States. Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula says it wants fires to burn on American embassies across the Arab world. Some parts of the Muslim world returned to calm Saturday. Police in Sudan guarded the streets of Kartoum one day after protesters attacked the American, British and German embassies. Sudan’s Foreign Minister is rejecting an American plan to send Marines into the capital to protect the embassy. Yemen and Tunisia were also quiet Saturday. But there were new protests Saturday in Afghanistan, India and Australia.

Many American Muslims in the United States watched as thousands of demonstrators took to the streets across the world. The demonstrators were protesting an anti-Muslim video made in the United States. What did the American Muslims think about what they saw? Elagrous Adin brings us a report from VOA’s Elizabeth Lee on their reaction. “From New York City to Los Angeles, California, many American Muslims were shocked by what they heard on the radio, saw on television or their computers, angry people rioting over a video that insulted and made fun of the prophet Mohammed. It made the American Muslims think about what caused the violence and the protests. Mustafa lives in New York City. ‘I don’t like the reaction people went to the consulate and burn it up, or fire there.’ While many Americans of the Islamic base do not approve of the protests, they also do not approve of the anti-Islamic video. Some reports said the video set-off the rioting against the United States. ‘Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion but that is a hate video and hate videos should be punished for what they did.’ Wasi Momin, a college student from Los Angeles, says the film alone did not cause the demonstrations. He says there are deeper reasons for the anger and uncontrolled emotions. ‘We have young folk just riled up many of them jobless coming off a kind of high off the revolution and protesting. I think they need something to direct their energy and effort towards and if they find something like this they acted on it they were impulsive.’ Dr. Maher Hathout is a spokesman for the Islamic Center of Southern California. He notes one reason many Muslims in the United States do not agree with many of the Muslims in the Middle East. He says this is because the United States permits different beliefs to be expressed openly. ‘We are kind of used to live with different ideas, with different opinions, with different expressions. Its a matter of being used to a situation. Of course if you are in a closed situation, you are used to hear your own voice and then a different voice sounds like strange voice.’ He says neither the anti-Islamic film nor the violent protests are justified. Dr. Hathout says they do not represent the views of the majority of Muslims or non-Muslims in the United States. I’m Nilargas Adin.”

The Taliban has claimed responsibility for an attack on a British military base in Afghanistan. The attack killed two United States Marines. A spokesman for the militant group said the attack was an answer to a recent film produced in the United States that insults the prophet Muhammad. He also said the Taliban attacked the base because Britain’s Prince Henry is serving there. NATO says militants attacked Camp Bastian in Helmand Province late Friday. They used small arms, rockets and suicide bombers. NATO says 18 militants died in the attack. One was wounded and captured. Several international troops were also wounded. Officials say Prince Henry was never in danger. The prince is third in line to the British throne. He is deployed at the base as a helicopter pilot. The Taliban has fought to kill him.

You are listening to the news in VOA Special English.

The international peace representative to Syria has met with President Bashar al-Assad. Lakhdar Brahimi met with Mr. Assad in Damascus Saturday. The meeting was their first since Mr. Brahimi took over as the United Nations and Arab League special representative to Syria. He told reporters that great efforts will be made to end the conflict. But he said the crisis is now a threat to the Middle East and the world. Syria claims its forces are fighting Islamist terrorists. State media reported that Mr. Assad told Mr. Brahimi that the crisis can only be stopped if countries that finance and train terrorists are stopped. Mr. Brahimi replaced former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan as the peace representative to Syria two weeks ago. After arriving in Syria Thursday, he described his mission to end the 18-month-long crisis as nearly impossible.

An ousted Russian lawmaker appeared before thousands of opposition supporters in the Russian capital Saturday. Gennady Gudkov promised to continue to pressure the government to hold new elections. Mr. Gudkov was thrown out of the government Friday on what he said were false accusations. He criticized the government of President Vladimir Putin as demonstrators in Moscow protested against the government. Mr. Gudkov accused the government of repression and refusal to compromise.

New Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud says returning security to the country will be his first order of business when he officially takes office Sunday. Mr. Mohamud was the target of a murder attempt earlier this week. He spoke Saturday to VOA’s Somali Service from the country’s well-guarded presidential home in Mogadishu. He arrived there Thursday three days early. He traveled with heavy security just hours after three suicide bombers attacked a hotel where he was living. At least four people including all three bombers were killed. Mr. Mohamud is an academic and a political moderate. He says his first goal will be to learn why so many young Somali men and women have joined the al-Shabab militant group. The group is outlawed in the country. Mr. Mohamud also said his administration will then create opportunities for these young people to defect from the group.

Briefly, here again is the major news of the hour.

Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula says its wants fires to burn at American embassies across the world. The Taliban has claimed responsibility for an attack on a British military base in Afghanistan. And the international peace representative to Syria says the crisis in the country is getting worse.

And that’s the news in VOA Special English. I’m Laura Bowman in Washington.
