Anti-Islam film back on LiveLeak website

THE HAGUE?The anti-Islamic film "Fitna" by far-right Dutch MP Geert Wilders was back on Liveleak.com Monday three days after the British-based Internet site removed it following threats to staff.

In a statement dated Sunday and posted on the website, LiveLeak.com says it has been working on upgrading all security measures and offering better protection for staff and their families.

"With these measures in place we have decided to once more make this video live on our site. We will not be pressured into censoring material which is legal and within our rules," the website said.

The film has already been seen by millions of viewers and is online in whole or in part on several other websites including YouTube.

Liveleak was the first to release the film on Thursday. It has since provoked widespread condemnation, with United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon calling it "offensively anti-Islamic."

Featuring shocking imagery of the attacks on New York in 2001 and Madrid in 2004 combined with quotes from the Koran, Islam's holy book, it has drawn outrage in some Muslim countries.

Over the weekend there were protests in Indonesia and Pakistan and calls for a boycott of Dutch products in Jordan and Malaysia.
