USA: Anti-Islam film will stay on YouTube
An actress who appeared in the anti-Islam film blamed for sparking violence in the Middle East has lost another legal bid to have the trailer taken down from YouTube.
A federal judge in LA denied a motion for injunction on November 30 by Cindy Lee Garcia.
Garcia lost a similar legal challenge in state court when a judge rejected her lawsuit in September.
Innocence of Muslims, which depicts Prophet Muhammad as a fraud enraged ignited violence in the Middle East, killing dozens.
Garcia said she was duped by the man behind the film, Mark Bassely Youssef aka Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. Ms Garcia claims the script she saw referenced neither Muslims nor Muhammad. She also said her voice had been dubbed over after filming.
