There has been widespread protests since Charlie Hebdo’s latest edition went viral around the world. Earlier this week, the surviving employees of the satirical newspaper went ahead to print the latest issue with Prophet Muhammad cartoon on its cover.
The cartoon is a drawing of the prophet holding a placard that reads “Je Suis Charlie”, with a tear running down his cheek.
Notable amongst the protests are those in Pakistan, Algeria and Niger.
The newspaper’s office was attacked by extremists last week, killing twelve people, including editors, cartoonists and two policemen.
The protests which were violent in Algeria, Niger and Pakistan have so far been peaceful in other places like Islamabad, Lahore, Jordan, Sudan and Iran.
The paper’s action has been widely condemned by top Islamic Clerics, especially in the Islamic world.
