Pakistan Disowns Bounty Set by Railways Minister on Innocence of Muslims Filmmaker

The government minister put up his own money as a bounty for the head of whoever produced "Innocence of Muslims"


The Pakistani government on Monday distanced itself from an offer by one of its Cabinet ministers to pay $100,000 for anyone who kills the maker of an anti-Islam film, saying the offer does not represent official government policy.

The offer by Railways Minister Ghulam Ahmad Bilour has drawn criticism in Pakistan even though anger against the film runs high in this predominantly Muslim country.
