US spends $70,000 on ads denouncing anti-Islam filmWashington: In a bid to tamp down public anger in Pakistan over anti-Islam film, the US embassy in Islamabad is spending $70,000 to run an ad on Pakistani television channels, showing President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton denouncing the blasphemous movie.

The US State Department says the embassy compiled clips of Obama and Clinton rejecting the contents of the movie in the 30-second ad that is running on seven Pakistani networks, MercuryNews.com reports.

The ad is aimed to reach the widest possible number of audience in Pakistan as tens and thousands of violent demonstrators today tried to reach the US embassy to record their protest against the film.
