A Palestinian Salafist shouts slogans as protesters burn a picture of US President Barack Obama along with Israeli and US flags during a demonstration against an amateur film mocking Islam in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip on September 14, 2012. Anti-US protests by crowds whipped into fury by a film that mocks Islam erupted across the Muslim world, as violence exploded in Sudan, Lebanon, Tunisia and Yemen leaving five dead and dozens injured.

President Obama spoke to the United Nations General Assembly today, addressing the demonstrations over the anti-Muslim video that sparked protests in Libya and elsewhere. He also discussed Iran's non-compliance with the U.N.'s Atomic Energy Commission.
