Thousands of people have rallied in the streets of Pakistan's largest city to protest against an anti-Islam film.

Police say 15,000 people in Karachi Saturday demonstrated against the low-budget film which was made in the U.S. State of California.

Protesters shouted anti-American slogans.

The film, Innocence of Muslims, has sparked angry and at times deadly demonstrations across the Muslim world. Dozens of people have been killed in the protests, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.
