Pakistan: anti-film ads feature Obama, Clinton

ISLAMABAD (AP) — New advertisements on Pakistani television that show the U.S. Embassy seal are condemning an anti-Islam video that was produced in the United States and triggered protests and riots in many countries.

The television ads feature clips of President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton during press appearances in Washington in which they condemned the video. Their words were subtitled in Urdu.

A caption on the ad reads: "Paid Content."

The advertisements, which appeared Thursday, end with the seal of the American Embassy in Islamabad, the Pakistani capital.

An embassy spokeswoman declined comment.

Also Thursday, hundreds of protesters angry about the movie clashed with security officials in Islamabad.
