A PAKISTANI government minister has offered a $100,000 reward for the death of the maker of the anti-Islam film produced in the US that sparked violent protests across the Muslim world.

Railways minister Ghulam Ahmed Bilour invited members of the Talban and Al Qaeda to take part in the "noble deed", and said given the chance he would kill the film-maker with his own hands.

Mr Bilour was speaking to reporters in the north-western city of Peshawar a day after violent nationwide protests against the Innocence of Muslims film left 21 people dead and more than 200 injured.

"I announce today that this blasphemer who has abused the holy prophet, if somebody will kill him, I will give that person a prize of $100,000," Mr Bilour said, urging others to shower the killer with cash and gold.

"I also invite Taliban and Al Qaeda brothers to be partners in this noble deed."
