French Muslim groups sue magazine over cartoons
Two Muslim groups are suing the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo after it published inflammatory cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.
In a law suit that will revive the debate between freedom of speech and dangerous provocation, the weekly magazine's director along with two cartoonists are accused of inciting racial hatred and defamation.
The allegations concern cartoons that caricatured the Prophet, including two drawings which show him naked, published at a time, on September 19, when violent anti-Western protests were flaring across the Muslim world in response to an US anti-Islam amateur film.
