Mohammad caricatures appear in Prague

Caricatures of the prophet Mohammed have appeared in Prague, together with slogans stressing the importance of freedom of speech. According to the news website Novinky, the billboards were seen in a number of Prague locations. They are said to be copies of the original Danish caricature with slogans such as “Freedom of speech comes at a price” and a link to a web page which is still under construction. Its authors allegedly want to condemn Islamic fundamentalism and stress the importance of upholding freedom of speech. Similar billboards appeared overnight in Brno, Moravia at the end of March. Muslims in the Czech Republic have condemned these actions but say they will not respond to provocation.
