Norway: Publisher withdraws textbook after caricature error

One of the largest publishing companies in Norway, Gyldendal, is pulling a new school textbook off the market. The book contains errors that could possibly endanger the safety of an editor caught in the debate over drawings of the prophet Muhammad. Gyldendal published a book on religion intended for high school students, called Eksistens (Existence), which contained coverage of the 2006 drawings of the prophet Muhammad. The book erroneously indicated that a Christian newspaper by Norwegian editor Vebjom Selbekk published caricatures of Muhammad. Fearful that this erroneous mention could endanger Selbekk with false accusation, all copies of the textbook were pulled and publishing is being halted.
