Hezbollah's Hassan Nasrallah warned of "very dangerous" global repercussions if an anti-Islam film is released in its entirety, as the death toll from violence sparked by the movie rose to 19.

An eruption of Muslim anger over a trailer of the American-made film that appeared on the Internet has spread across the world, taking hold on Monday in Afghanistan, Indonesia, the West Bank, the Philippines and Yemen.

Tens of thousands of demonstrators poured into the streets of southern Beirut to denounce the film at Nasrallah's request, and the head of the powerful Shiite Muslim group surprised supporters by making a rare public appearance.
