A cabinet minister from America's close ally in the War on Terror, Pakistan, is offering a bounty of about $90,000 for the killing of the guy behind the "Innocence of Muslims" film that has inflamed the Muslim world.
Railways Minister Ghulam Ahmad Balor said at a news conference in
Peshawar that he would personally finance a bounty aimed at the maker of
the crude, low-budget video that denigrates the Prophet Muhammad.
Mr Balor acknowledged that incitement to murder was illegal
but said he was ''ready to be hanged in the name of the Prophet
Muhammad''. And he invited the Taliban and al-Qaeda to be ''partners in
this noble deed'', according to news reports.
