* Pakastani Maulana Muhammad Yousuf Qureshi of the Mohabbat Khan Mosque in Peshawar has drawn an underline under a previous fatwa issued against the cartoonist responsible for drawing caricatures of Muhammed in a Danish newspaper some 15 months ago. A million dollars is still there as the reward, but I'm thinking the fact that it's multiple cartoonists gives the issuers a legal out.
* Editors Akram Subra and Yahya Al-Obeed from the Yemeni weekly newspaper Al-Hurriyahhave been sentenced to jail for four months for reprinting the Danish cartoons. The paper will also be closed for a month. This is the third paper punished, and the first to come with jail sentences since I believe Yemen's executive branch promised to pardon journalists sent to prison. So that could be interesting. None of the papers involved endorsed the images.
