Anti-Koran film by Dutch MP released online
The Fitna, an anti-Koran film, and made by controversial parliament member Geert Wilders, was posted on the internet Thursday.

It was posted on his Freedom Party's website but could be watched only briefly before the site said it was not available for technical reasons.

The 15-minute film called Fitna, a Quranic term sometimes translated as "strife", started with a warning that it contains "very shocking images".

It is interspersed with images of the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Centre and other bombings with quotes from the Quran.

The Dutch government has distanced itself from Wilders' views and fears the film will cause protests by Muslims similar to those sparked by the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad (PBHU) in Danish newspapers in 2006.
