Controversial documentary maker Michael Moore has increased his protection after receiving death threats.

The Bowling For Columbine director was surrounded by bodyguards at the Washington DC premiere of his new film FAHRENHEIT 9/11 on Wednesday night (23JUN04).

And a friend of the auteur confirms, "There have been major threats from some very sick people."

Moore's film challenges US President George W Bush's handling of the aftermath to the September 11 (01) terrorist attacks.
