BERLIN: German Chancellor Angela Merkel says authorities are considering whether to ban the public screening of a film about Islam's Prophet Mohammad that has caused violent fury among Muslims worldwide.
Merkel says she sees "good reasons" to forbid a public screening in Germany because it could endanger public security.
The chancellor told reporters Monday that a total ban on the crudely made movie isn't currently being considered.
Germany on the weekend forbade American Pastor Terry Jones, who sparked Arab world outrage when he burned Qurans on the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, from entering the country for a screening.
The fringe far-right political party that invited him says it plans to show the film in Berlin in November and will now invite one of the filmmakers instead.
