Moscow: A Moscow court Monday declared as extremist the anti-Islam US film 'Innocence of Muslims'. The announcement by Moscow's Tverskoi Court came as the latest in a series of legal moves against the controversial movie in Russia.

The judge noted that anyone dissatisfied with the verdict will have the opportunity to appeal once the final ruling had been delivered. Monday's conclusion comes ahead of the full ruling, expected Oct 5.

Last Friday, a court in Chechnya's capital city of Grozny also ruled against the widespread distribution of the film.
