Salafist media’s growing influence in Egypt

Conservative Islamic channels appear to be enjoying popularity after the posting of an anti-Islam video.

There have been demonstrations across the Muslim world against an anti-Islam video made in the US.

The protests started in Cairo, after al-Nas, a local Salafist TV station, replayed a clip of the film.

Al Jazeera’s Barnaby Phillips has been to the TV station and reports on how it and other conservative Islamic channels appear to be enjoying growing influence.
