Swap Islam for Jesus: Hoax story riles Muslims
A satirical news piece claiming Spanish citizenship would be granted to Moroccan citizens who gave up Islam and converted to Christianity has been taken seriously by the North African country's media. The 'news' has not gone down well in Morocco.
It seems satire doesn't always cross borders but there are times when it does cross the line.
We saw it happen before when American 'newspaper' The Onion ran a fake story about North Korean leader Kim Jong-un being voted the sexiest man alive and China's press took the story seriously.
