French magazine prints 'halal' Mohammed comic
by Rory Mulholland
A French magazine, which sparked international protests and saw its offices firebombed after it printed cartoons mocking Mohammed, on Wednesday published a "halal" cartoon biography of Islam's founder.
The editor of Charlie Hebdo weekly insists that "The Life of Mohammed", whose cover shows a goofy-looking prophet leading a camel through the desert, is an educational work prepared by a Franco-Tunisian sociologist.
"It is a biography authorised by Islam since it was edited by Muslims," said Stephane Charbonnier, who was also the illustrator of the book which comes complete with academic footnotes.
