ASSociated Press: Rice Accuses Iran, Syria in Muslim Violence

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice accused Iran and Syria on Wednesday of instigating Muslim protests triggered by drawings of the Prophet Muhammad, and President Bush pleaded for an end to violence.

“I have no doubt that Iran and Syria have gone out of their way to inflame sentiments and have used this for their own purposes,” Rice said. “The world ought to call them on it.”

She did not offer specifics during a brief State Department news conference with Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni. The United States accuses Iran and Syria of funding terrorism and has tried to unite world opinion against both Middle Eastern nations.

ASSociated Press: Cartoon Protesters Direct Anger at U.S.

In Washington, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice accused Iran and Syria of instigating protests in their countries, and
President Bush called upon governments to stop the violence and protect the lives of diplomats overseas.

The United States and other countries were looking into whether extremist groups may be inciting protesters to riot, said Yonts, the U.S. spokesman in Afghanistan.

Iranian vice president Isfandiar Rahim Mashaee rejected Rice’s assertion that Iran was inflaming Muslim anger over the cartoons. “That is 100 percent a lie,” Mashaee said in Jakarta, Indonesia. “It is without attribution.”
