BEIRUT -- A Lebanese judge issued Monday an order prohibiting film "Innocence of Muslims" in Lebanon due to its "great offense" to Islam, the National News Agency reported.

Magistrate Judge Nadim Zwein gave this order after it was found that the movie contains several scenes considered to be offensive, the report said.

The judge also ordered the information ministry and all internet service providers to take necessary measures to stop the movie's broadcast in Lebanon.

A fine of 1 million U.S. dollars will be laid down against any side that violates the judge's order.

A request has been made to YouTube, Liveleak and the Hollywood Reporter websites to ban the airing of the film in Lebanon. (PNA/Xinhua)
