Editor Charged Over Danish Cartoons

The BBC reported as early as last Friday that Teguh Santosa, the online editor at Rakyat Merdeka, has been charged with inciting hatred towards a religious group. This is because Santosa posted the cartoons featuring the Prophet Muhammed, cartoons that originally ran in Denmark's Jyllands-Posten and as a result drove riots throughout the world. Indonesia was one of the focal points for rioting and political protest. Santosa faces up to five years in prison.
