Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, has made a rare public appearance to address tens of thousands of supporters who took to the streets of southern Beirut to denounce a film mocking Islam and the Prophet Mohammed.

Monday's address was only Nasrallah's fifth public appearance in six years, and the first time he made a full speech in person to thousands of his supporters since 2008.
