Mohammed cartoonist awarded
Artist Kurt Westergaard has been chosen to receive the M100 Sanssouci Media Award for his defence of free speech through his Mohammed cartoon drawings, which were first published in Jyllands-Posten newspaper in 2005.
The theme for this year's M100 award ceremony, to be held tonight in Potsdam in eastern Germany, is 'Freedom of the Press in Europe'. According to Potsdam mayor Jann Jakobs, Westergaard is 'a person who has become a symbol for freedom of expression and of the press'.
