56 Countries Printed Prophet Muhammed Cartoons
A study showed cartoons of Prophet Mohammed, that were first published in a Danish newspaper last year and sparked an outcry in the Muslim world, have been reprinted in 143 newspapers in 56 countries.
A Journalism School study in Cophenhagen found that most of the reproductions have appeared in Western countries, including 70 newspapers in Europe, 14 in the United States, three in Canada and New Zealand, two in Australia and one in Japan.
But the drawings have also been printed in eight Muslim countries: Algeria, Bosnia-Hercegovina, Egypt, Indonesia, Jordan, Malaysia, Morocco and Saudi Arabia.
In the United States, no national newspaper has published the cartoons, but 14 regional and local publications have, according to the study conducted in February.
