ISLAMABAD (AP) - Pakistan is distancing itself from a bounty placed on the maker of an anti-Islam film that has sparked protests, some violent, throughout the Muslim world.
The Pakistani foreign office says an offer by a government minister of $100,000 for anyone who kills the filmmaker does not represent official policy.
The reward announcement was made Saturday by Pakistan's Railways minister, who said he'd pay the money out of his own pocket.
