A Pakistani protestor has died after inhaling smoke from burning U.S. flags during a rally against the anti-Islam film Innocence of Muslims.
Abdullah Ismail died in Mayo hospital in Lahore having complained of feeling unwell during the angry demonstrations in the eastern Pakistan city yesterday.
Around 10,000 people are estimated to have taken part in the protest organised by the group Tehreek Hurmat-i-Rasool.
Demonstrators chanted anti-U.S. slogans before setting light to an American flag outside the U.S. Consulate.Some, who tried to reach the wall of the building, scuffled with baton-wielding police.
The participants marched from Nila Gumbad to Masjid-i-Shuhada on The Mall and despite a ban on rallies on The Mall, the road remained blocked to traffic until 6pm
