This article, a despatch from Beirut, Lebanon, is an account of the author's experience of covering a demonstration turned riot in that city. The demonstration was an action by Muslims against Denmark to protest the publication of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed which were published in a Danish newspaper. The author narrowly escaped harm after he was mistaken by the rioters for a Dane.
