Ya contamos la muerte del Padre Santoro en este blog. Bien pues, han asesinado a un pescador hindú por las caricaturas:
Dubai, Feb 15 (PTI) An Indian sailor was allegedly beaten to death by his colleagues on board a Norwegian oil tanker in the international waters off the coast of Fujairah in the UAE following an argument over the cartoon row.
A fight ensued among the seamen after an argument over the cartoon issue, causing the death of one sailor, a media report said.
Official sources confirmed the death of 31-year-old Sudheer Nonia Jagannathan, hailing from Mumbai, but refused to comment on the issue.
“Le pegaron hasta la muerte por sus colegas a bordo de un petrolero en aguas internacionales en la costa de los Emiratos Árabes Unidos, después de una discusión sobre las caricturas”. Ante todo, saber encajar la crítica de otros…
El bloguero Sandmonkey informa que el editor del periódico egipcio que publicó las caricaturas ha dejado Egipto, diciendo que volverá con nuevas noticias:
Abdel Hamouda, the editor of Al Fagr newspaper, the one that published the cartoons back in october, has officially left the country for an undisclosed number of days in a journalistic investigation mission according to this week’s edition of the newspaper and will come back “soon” with “journalistic surprises”. This, of course, has absolutely nothing with the fact that an onslaught of phone calls from the international media demanding that he verify the story that he did indeed publish those cartoon in Ramadan with nothing happening to be true. He probably didn’t look at his Jordanian counterparts- who have been in jail since they published those cartoons and were just allowed to be released on bail- and think “Shit, that could be me. I better get out of here!”. No, that probably never happend at all, and this is all just a co-incidence!
En el mismo post nos informa de que ha recibido muchas llamadas preguntándole si de verdad había publicado esas caricaturas…
En Paquistán, han muerto 3 personas y se han producidpo numerosos daños materiales durante las protestas por las caricaturas:
More than 70,000 people flooded the streets of the northwestern city of Peshawar, said Saeed Wazir, a senior police officer. The massive crowd went on a rampage, torching businesses and fighting police, who struck back with tear gas and batons. A bus terminal operated by South Korea’s Sammi Corp. was torched, police said.
Protesters burned a KFC restaurant, three movie theaters and the offices of the main mobile phone company in the country. A Norwegian mobile phone company’s offices were also ransacked. Gunfire was heard near the burning KFC, as police tried to clear people from a main street, witnesses said.
An 8-year-old boy died after being struck in the face by a bullet fired by a protester, police officer Shahid Khan said. A 25-year-old man was killed by an electric cable that was snapped by gunfire, said the man’s cousin, Jehangir Khan.
At least 45 people were being treated for injuries in Peshawar’s two state-run hospitals, Khan and witnesses said….
Hundreds of Afghan refugees joined the protest in Peshawar, the capital of the conservative North West Frontier Province.Many chanted “Death to Denmark!” and “Hang those who drew the insulting cartoons!” Others burned Danish flags and effigies of the Danish prime minister.
Rioting also broke out Wednesday in the northwestern town of Tank, near the South Waziristan tribal region where security officials have said al-Qaida-linked foreign fighters are hiding. Protesters set fire to 30 shops selling CDs, DVDs, and videos, said Attiq Wazir, a local police official. Suspected Islamic militants had warned music shops to close, witnesses said.

Al-Jazzeera informa de que han encarcelado a más periodistas por este asunto:
Algeria and Yemen have arrested journalists working for newspapers that have reprinted cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that led to protests around the world.
On Sunday, Algeria closed two newspapers and arrested their editors for printing the images of the cartoons of the Prophet.
Kahel Bousaad and Berkane Bouderbala, respectively editors of the pro-Islamist weeklies, Errisala and Iqraa, were detained last week and will appear before an investigating judge in Algiers on Monday, staff of the two Arabic newspapers said.
A member of Iqraa’s staff said: “The cartoons published in our weekly were [deliberately] fogged. They were accompanied by an article denouncing them.”…
The Algerian authorities have condemned the cartoons and urged the Danish government to punish those behind their publication….
Yemen detained three journalists on Sunday and is seeking a fourth after closing three publications that printed the cartoons. Al-Hurriya, Yemen Observer and al-Rai al-Aam were shut and their case sent to prosecutors.
The officials said those detained are Mohammad al-Asaadi, the editor-in-chief of the English-language Yemen Observer, Akram Sabra, the managing editor of al-Hurriya weekly newspaper and reporter Yehiya al-Abed of Hurriya.
The prosecution has issued a warrant for Kamal al-Aalafi, the editor-in-chief of al-Rai al-Aam….
Pero es que en la Universidad de Illionois han suspendido a los integrantes de un periódico escolar por publicar las caricaturas (via Michelle Malkin):
The editor in chief of a student-led newspaper serving the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has been suspended for printing cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad that, when published in Europe, enraged Muslims and led to violent protests in the Middle East and Asia.
Editor Acton Gorton and his opinions editor, Chuck Prochaska, were relieved of their duties at The Daily Illini on Tuesday while a task force investigates “the internal decision-making and communication” that led to the publishing of the cartoons, according to a statement by the newspaper’s publisher and general manager, Mary Cory.
Gorton said he expects to be fired at the conclusion of the investigation, which is expected to take two weeks….
“This is not a publicity stunt, and this wasn’t an easy decision,” said Gorton, who said he spent three years in the Army as a medic and paratrooper before college. “I was stressed and couldn’t sleep at night. But I just felt it was an important issue to address in the newspaper.”
Al editor jefe le han suspendido, le están investigando y espera que le echen cuando termine la investigación. No sólo hay dhimmies en Europa.
La noticia “graciosa” del día viene de Irán, país que ha decidido cambiar el nombre de las famosas galletas danesas por las caricaturas:
TEHRAN, Iran - Not content with pelting European embassies with Molotov cocktails to protest against cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, Iranians have decided to rename the “Danish pastries” relished by this nation of cake lovers.
From now on, the sweet, flaky pastries which dominate the shelves in Iran’s cake shops will be known as “Roses of the Prophet Muhammad,” the official IRNA news agency reported as pressure on Denmark over the cartoons took on a new dimension.
“No one is allowed to make fun of our beloved and respected prophet,” Hassan Nasserzadeh, a cake shop owner in central Tehran, told Reuters.
Y se llamarán “las rosas del Profeta Mahoma”. Particularmente me parece un nombre un poco cursi para unas galletas de mantequilla, pero bueno, me surge otra pregunta: ¿y el boicot? ¿o van a hacer las galletas en Irán?…
Por último, de Australia nos llega esta noticia:
When asked whether he regretted his decision to publish the Mohammed cartoons, in light of the firestorm they unleashed in the Islamic world and threats against him, Flemming said it was like asking a rape victim whether she regretted wearing a short skirt.
