Dhaka: Thousands of people in Bangladesh on Friday staged demonstrations in protest against an anti-Islam film that has triggered anger among Muslims across the world, Xinhua reported.

After the Friday prayers, four Islamic organisations -- Islami Oikyo Jote, Islami Oikyo Andolon, Khelafat Andolon and Jamiote Talabaye Arabia -- brought out processions in Dhaka.

Angry protesters burned US flags and chanted anti-US slogans. They also demanded the arrest of the filmmaker.

Demonstrations were seen in many other cities and towns of the Muslim-majority South Asian country, local television channels reported.

However, no violence was reported in any of the protests.
