New York - US President Barack Obama is condemning an anti-Muslim film and the violence in the Middle East that has followed its release, saying there is "no speech that justifies mindless violence".

Obama says in a speech on Tuesday before the United Nations General Assembly that "there are no words that excuse the killing of innocent" and "no video that justifies an attack on an embassy".

Obama says the video "is an insult not only to Muslims, but to America as well".

The president was speaking in the aftermath of violent protests in the Middle East and North Africa connected to the release of an anti-Muslim video produced in the United States.

Four Americans were killed in Libya, including US ambassador Chris Stevens, along with more than 50 others in the violence.
