French magazine to publish cartoons

French satirical magazine is preparing to republish the controversial cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed which have provoked a series of violent protests by Muslims around the world.

French magazine to publish cartoons

The magazine, Charlie Hebdo, plans to publish all 12 controversial cartoons as well as a new front-page caricature of its own.

Several Islamic organisations led by the official Muslim Council of France asked the Paris civil court to impose a ban on the grounds that the cartoons were an incitement to religious or racial hatred.

However, the case was rejected by the court.

The expected publication today comes as international news agencies around the world are reporting that the violent protests appear to be tapering off.

However, three people have been killed in renewed protests over the cartoons in the southern Afghan provice of Qalat.
