The man suspected of directing a provacative anti-Islam movie has been questioned by US probation officers, as violent protests – which the trailer of the film had triggered across the Muslim world – eased considerably.
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was convicted of bank fraud in 2010 but was later released on condition that he did not access the internet or use aliases.
Police are investigating whether Nakoula violated terms of his probation by accessing the internet. The objectionable video caused mayhem only after being posted online.
Nakoula on Wednesday told the AP news agency that he was logistics manager for the film.
The trailer triggered protests across the Muslim world with Western embassies being targeted in North Africa and the Middle East. While the US ambassador to Libya and three other staff were killed in an attack on the US consulate in the city of Benghazi on Tuesday, the violence peaked after Friday prayers.
