US filmmaker says he won't return to besieged home
LOS ANGELES (AP) - A filmmaker linked to an anti-Islamic movie inflaming protests across the Middle East said following an interview with law enforcement officials that would not return to his home, possibly heading into hiding, authorities said.
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was interviewed by federal probation officers for about half an hour at the station shortly after 12am (3pm, Singapore time) in his hometown of Cerritos, California, said Mr Steve Whitmore, spokesman for the Los Angeles County sheriff's department.
After that, deputies dropped Nakoula off at an undisclosed location.
"He is gone. We don't know where he went," Mr Whitmore said. "He said he is not going back to his home."
