Dutch news site AD has removed an image of the Vilks cartoon after using it to illustrate a story on the plot to murder the Swedish cartoonist. Acting editor Bart Verkade notes that the site received many offended responses, including an email campaign organized by the As-Soenna mosque in The Hague. In covering the story about the removal of the cartoon from AD, both De Pers and Elsevier reprinted the image, to further criticism from Imam Sheik Fawaz Jneid of the As-Soennah mosque.
Charlie Hebdo, a weekly satirical publication, has congratulated a Daniel Laconte film, C’est Dur d’_tre Aim_s par des Cons (It’s Hard to be Liked by Idiots), being shown at the 61st Cannes Film Festival. The film examines the Muhammad cartoon controversy.
