No Apology Coming From Swedes in New Controversy Around Muhammed ‘Toon

A protest outside the newspaper Nerikes Allehanda capped off a flurry of protests late last week regarding that publication's printing of a Lars Vilks cartoon depicting Muhammed's head on the body of a dog. Complaints to Swedish diplomats from authorities in Iran and Pakistan were made earlier in the week. Around 300 people attended the rally. Don't wait up, the newspaper officially responded on Saturday. The Organization of the Islamic Conference decided Sunday to criticize the use of the cartoon a second time, but urged Muslims to make their reactions peaceful.
