United Nations: Algeria is proposing an initiative under the auspices of the United Nations that would limit freedom of expression in order to prevent the denigrating of Islam.

Algeria`s Foreign Minister Mourad Medelci on Saturday said a global response is needed following the recent violent demonstrations provoked by a US-produced anti-Islam video.

Dozens of world leaders raised the issue of free speech versus denigration of religion at this year`s ministerial meeting of the UN General Assembly.
Malaysia`s foreign minister Anifah Aman told the assembly today that attacks on Islam shouldn`t be protected by freedom of speech laws.
