Thousands of people across Pakistan are expected to take to the streets to protest against a video made in the U.S. that denigrates Islam. Pakistan's government unexpectedly announced Friday would be a public holiday, saying it would be a day to honor the prophet Muhammed. The government used it as an opportunity to also denounce the video, calling it blasphemy.
