A top Afghan cleric says US President Barack Obama and "American Jews" were responsible for the deaths of US diplomats in Libya.

He has however urged only peaceful protest against an anti-Islam film.

"This is the work of American Jews, their movie has hurt the sentiments of Muslims around the world," Enayatullah Baleegh told several thousand worshippers at the Pul-e-Khishti mosque in central Kabul.
