FROM THIS EPISODE

US Ambassador Christopher Stevens was killed by an armed mob in Libya. Today, protests continue at US outposts elsewhere in the Muslim world. We talk with reporters, diplomats, pollsters and others about anti-Americanism -- its roots and its consequences. Also, the latest on the producer of the film, Innocence of Muslims.

Reporter's Notebook The Mystery Behind the Anti-Muslim Video 6 MIN, 49 SEC

The film that's caused so much trouble around the world is crudely produced and full of blasphemy hateful to Muslims. At first, the producer of Innocence of Muslims described himself as an Israeli-American citizen who raised money from wealthy Jews. Now it turns out he's somebody very different. Laura Rozen reports from Washington for Al-Monitor.com.

Main Topic Violence against America in the Muslim World 36 MIN, 34 SEC

US Marines have arrived in Libya and FBI agents are on their way in the aftermath of the armed attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Libya has arrested four people and says others are under surveillance, but why did the attack occur where the US is popular for liberating the country? In the meantime, protesters are outside embassies in Cairo and Yemen's capital, Sana'a, and there's growing concern about protecting American personnel. We hear that anti-American anger goes well beyond spontaneous outrage over a crude and blasphemous film.
