Muhammeds Ansigt

Twelve caricatures of Mohammed were published by published by Jyllands-Posten in 2005 under the headline Muhammeds Ansigt. They have subsequently caused riots, protests, and even murders around the world.

Several new Mohammed cartoons have been published in expressions of solidarity with Jyllands-Posten, in: Weekendavisen, France Soir, The Guardian, Philadelphia Daily News, Le Monde, Het Nieuwsblad, Charlie Hebdo, The Daily Tar Heel, Akron Beacon Journal, The Strand, Nana, International Herald Tribune, Gorodskiye Vesti, and Harper's. Mohammed even appeared in (but was censored from) South Park.

Many publications have reprinted some or all of the original twelve images, with Kurt Westergaard's caricature being the image most often reproduced. Some of them appear in the books Blasphemy and L'Affaire Des Caricatures.)
