KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - A religious figure in western Afghanistan is offering a $300,000 bounty to anyone who kills the maker of an anti-Islam film that has angered Muslims around the world.

The bounty is being offered by Mir Farooq Hussini, the spokesman for an organization representing about 450 religious schools in Herat province.

The film, made in the United States, portrays Islam's Prophet Muhammad as a fraud, womanizer and child molester. It has led to violence and the deaths of more than 50 people, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.

Hussini told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he also is offering a $500,000 reward for the killing of a cleric in Yazd province in neighboring Iran who has allegedly insulted the prophet's wife.
