Papers republish Mohamed cartoon
Denmark's leading newspapers have reprinted a caricature of the prophet Mohamed that led to riots in Muslim countries two years ago.
The papers said they wanted to show their commitment to freedom of speech after Tuesday's arrest in Denmark of three people accused of plotting to kill Kurt Westergaard, who drew the cartoon, which shows Mohamed wearing a turban shaped like a bomb with a lit fuse.
The Jyllands-Posten, which first published the cartoon on 30 September 2005, reprinted Mr Westergaard's cartoon yesterday, along with several other dailies, including Politiken and Berlingske Tidende, which said: "We are doing this to document what is at stake in this case."
