French Weekly Puts Drawing of Mohammed on Cover

The satiric French weekly, Charlie Hebdo, published a comic book on Wednesday whose cover displays a drawing of Mohammed leading a camel in the desert.

The same weekly published caricatures of Mohammed last year which led to riots in France and the torching of the magazine's offices.

The weekly's editors said that this time there is no attempted satire involved and no desire to commit provocations. The editors claimed that the article is a product of research and even has educational aspects as it describes the life of Mohammed.
