Play associated audio
This week, an American-made film mocking Islam sparked violent anti-U.S. protests across the Middle East and beyond. Weekends on All Things Considered host Guy Raz gets the latest from NPR's Leila Fadel who is in Benghazi, Libya.

Raz talks about it with Steven Cook of the Council on Foreign Relations and Rami Khouri of Harvard's Belfer Center.
