Swedish Mohammed cartoonist attacked during free speech lecture
A Swedish cartoonist whose sketch of the Prophet Mohammed enraged many Muslims, was attacked while giving a lecture about freedom of speech.
Lars Vilks, who depicted the Prophet Mohammad with the body of a dog in 2007, said he was headbutted by a man sitting on the front row as he spoke at the University of Uppsala, about 44 miles from Stockholm.
"He head-butted me and I fell into the wall and lost my glasses," Mr Vilks said. He added he was unharmed.
