Hundreds of worshippers marched near the US embassy in Qatar on Friday over the anti-Islam video. The protest had been reportedly called for by Doha-based Egyptian  Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi and began after his Friday sermon at the Omar bin Khateb mosque. The protesters, a mix of Qataris and foreigners, chanted slogans like: "Obama, Obama, we are all Osama," and "the people want the downfall of the [US] ambassador." 

The following images were taken by Al Jazeera's Matthew Cassel at that demonstration.
