A Pakistani government minister has offered a $100,000 reward to the person who kills Egyptian-American film director Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the man linked to an anti-Islamic film which has stirred riots across the Muslim world.
In his first interview with a Western broadcaster, the minister Ghulam Ahmed Bilour, told the Today programme's Zubeida Malik that he stands by his decision and has no regrets, adding that "this is the only way to stop the terrorism, we have no other choice."
Western governments had hoped he would be prosecuted, however Mr Bilour has not even been asked to resign. "Why resign?", he said. "I have done a good thing."
Mr Bilour said that he has not made this offer in his capacity as a minister. "I am not the spokesman of my party... it is my personal decision".
