Support for Mohammed Drawing Newspaper

”Nerikes Allehanda”, the local newspaper that published a controversial cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed, has been given support by the World Association of Newspapers.

More than 18,000 newspapers around the world are members of the organistation, which says in a statement that it condemns the death threats made against artist Lars Vilks and the Editor-in-Chief of Nerikes Allehanda Ulf Johansson.

The W.A.N says it understands that the publication may have caused offence to Muslims, but adds that the newspaper enjoys full freedom of expression and can print what it likes.
