Danish FM meets top Muslim cleric to defuse cartoon tension
by Samer al-Atrush
Denmark's foreign minister said on Wednesday that the hurt caused to Muslims from cartoons lampooning the Prophet Mohammed was "very regrettable," after she met Egypt's top cleric to defuse tensions caused by the re-publication of the caricatures.
Lene Espersen said she and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmed al-Tayeb, discussed "how to make sure that the great religions of the world can live peacefully side by side."
The meeting followed the publication last last month of a book carrying the caricatures, entitled "The Tyranny of Silence."
