Party leader misquoted in Egyptian newspaper
Socialist People's Party leader Villy Søvndal's picture appeared on the front page of an Egyptian newspaper Wednesday with the quote ‘Muslims can go to hell' attributed to him.
Søvndal has been a hot subject in the news lately, but this most recent front page appearance is one over which he is not especially pleased, as he was misquoted.
Søvndal's ‘go to hell' remarks were made over a week ago in response to radical members of the Islamic fundamentalist group Hizb ut-Tahrir's protests against the reprinting of the Mohammed drawings. The drawings were published again in connection with the arrest of three people who planned to murder the cartoonist.
