Pakistan Monitor – Tracking the Anti-Islam Film Backlash

Covert Contact - Live Streaming Social Media Intelligence - Pakistan

Violent clashes around the US embassy today:

Several people have died in protests in the past week against the film in the Middle East and North Africa.

The BBC’s Aleem Maqbool in Islamabad says some protesters have said they will not leave the diplomatic enclave until the US embassy is on fire.

However, he has not yet seen any evidence of the army’s arrival.

The Covert Contact Pakistan Monitor is picking up much of this activity (as are the dedicated embassy and consulate monitors). It is currently tracking discussions about the government, issues related to Afghanistan, and Islamists. As active as it is now it promises to be even more active during Friday’s scheduled protests.

Subscriptions to Covert Contact’s array of over 100 topic monitors and 350 live social media streams are available for only $10 per month.
