Thai Muslims protest Danish cartoon

Members of an organization called the Muslim Group of Peace demonstrated peacefully outside the Bangkok embassy for about two hours and called on all Thai Muslims to boycott Danish products.

The group condemned the "villainous behavior" of the newspapers and criticized Denmark's government for failing to stop the cartoon's publication, according to a written statement.

Last month, Denmark's leading newspapers reprinted one of the cartoons after Danish police said they had uncovered an allegedly plot to kill the cartoonist, whose drawing was among 12 cartoons that ignited protests across the Muslim world in 2006.
