    Koran Film Taken Down 'After Threats'

    (CNSNews.com) - Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders' controversial film linking the Koran with extremism and terrorism was removed from a British Internet site Friday, after the site said staff had been threatened.

    Millions saw the 16-minute film before LiveLeak removed it, and the film was condemned by many, including U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the Organization of the Islamic Conference, a 57-member bloc of Islamic states.

    "Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature, and some ill-informed reports from certain corners of the British media that could directly lead to the harm of some of our staff, LiveLeak.com has been left with no other choice but to remove Fitna from our servers," the site LiveLeak.com said in a statement.
