CAIRO - Egypt's government on Wednesday denounced a film deemed offensive to Islam that sparked fury in Egypt and Libya, calling on Egyptians to exercise restraint. This, as the Vatican deplored what it deemed a provocation against Muslims, while Afghanistan banned the YouTube to curtail access to the anti-Islam film.

"The film is offensive to the Prophet and immoral," the Egyptian cabinet said in a statement read by Prime Minister Hisham Qandil at a news conference.

"We call on the great people of Egypt to exercise restraint when expressing their anger," it said.

Meanwhile, the Vatican condemned what it called 'provocations' against Muslims after US consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya, where the US ambassador and three embassy aides were killed.

In Kabul,  Afghanistan banned YouTube to prevent access to anti-Islam film, according to a ministry official.
