    A burnt out car blocks Dee Street in east Belfast January 6, 2013. Pro-British militant groups are instigating and exploiting the riots that have rocked the Northern Irish capital Belfast in the past month, a police officers' representative said on Sunday. The violence, which stems from Loyalist protests over the removal of the British flag over Belfast City Hall, is among the worst in the province since a 1998 peace accord ended three decades of sectarian conflict.

    In this Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012 photo, an Indian Muslim woman along with children walks at one of the resettlement colonies of the survivors of 2002 riots in Ahmadabad, India. Eleven years after Modi became the chief minister of the western state of Gujarat - and 10 years after brutal anti-Muslim rioting left over a 1,100 people there dead - Modi is campaigning for his third term. Nearly everyone expects him to be swept into office, and the top leadership of his rightwing Bharatiya Janata Party is already hailing him as a future prime minister. But few politicians in India are as polarizing as Modi. (AP Photo/Ajit Solanki)

    FILE - In this Friday, Sept. 14, 2012 file photo, Palestinian Islamic Jihad supporters rally with banners depicting Morris Sadek during a protest in Khan Younis, southern Gaza Strip, as part of widespread anger across the Muslim world about a film ridiculing Islam's Prophet Muhammad. The banners in Arabic read, "Death to Israel," "death to America" and, "anyone but God's Prophet." An Egyptian court on Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2012 has convicted in absentia seven Egyptian Coptic Christians and a Florida-based American pastor and sentenced them to death on charges linked to an anti-Islam film that had sparked riots in parts of the Muslim world.

    Kenyan police extinguish fire set on a road block, during riots in Eastleigh, Nairobi, Kenya, Monday, Nov. 19, 2012. Police in Kenya have fired bullets into the air and tear gas into the streets to stop two groups from clashing one day after an improvised explosive device ripped through a bus and killed seven people. Alfred Mutua, a witness to Monday's clashes in downtown Nairobi, said people are angry at ethnic Somalis, whom many Kenyans broadly blame for a series of grenade and explosive device attacks in Kenya over the last year. Mutua said others are trying to take advantage of the chaos by looting shops. (AP Photo)
