Leftist french paper anoys more muslims

The front page of "Charlie Hebdo" carried a new drawing of Muhammad.

He is burying his face in his hands and saying: "It's hard to be loved by fools".

Inside pages carried the Danish cartoons and an editorial explaining the decision to reprint them.

Philippe Val, the magazine's editor, wrote: "When extremists extract concessions from democracies on points of principle, either by blackmail or terror, democracies do not have long left."

Sources at Charlie-Hebdo said its offices and some staff had been placed under police protection. As well as publishing the Danish cartoons, Charlie-Hebdo published other cartoons on its back page which caricatured other religions including Christianity and Judaism.
