BEIRUT:Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah made a rare public appearance on Monday to address an anti-US rally in southern Beirut attended by thousands of protesters who took to the streets to denounce a film mocking Islam.

It was his fifth public appearance in six years, and the first time he made a full speech in person to thousands of his supporters since 2008. Nasrallah has been in hiding since 2006, when his Lebanese Shiite movement and Israel fought a bloody 33-day war.
