Dagbladet

Dagbladet
After Aftenposten printed Kurt Westergaard's Mohammed cartoon last month, another Norwegian paper has also printed a Mohammed caricature. There have been demonstrations outside the offices of Dagbladet after the paper printed a front-page drawing of Mohammed on 3rd February.

The image (apparently drawn by Tatiana Soskin in 1997) is not one of the original Jyllands-Posten Mohammed cartoons, and is considerably more offensive than any of them: it depicts Mohammed as a pig, which is an extreme insult in Islamic culture. It is one of three deliberately inflammatory images circulated in the Middle East by a group of Danish imams to provoke protests against Jyllands-Posten.
