Mohammed Cartoons: Fuel for tension, Vatican daily

19 September, 19:34

(ANSAmed) - Vatican City, September 19 - 'Fuel for tension' was the headline which Vatican daily Osservatorio Romano chose for its article to appear tomorrow on French magazine Charlie Hebdo's publication of cartoons satirising Prophet Mohammed.

'While we are trying with difficulty to lower tensions across the Muslim world caused by the film Innocence of Muslims, there is now the risk of a new front of protests after French weekly Charlie Hebdo published some cartoons on Mohamed', wrote the Vatican daily in the article appearing tomorrow.

'The questionable initiative of the French weekly threatens - as stressed by the President of the French Bishops' Conference Cardinal Andre' Vingt-Trois - to fuel tension after the assault on the American consulate in Banghazi in which US ambassador Chris Stevens and another three officials died, the bloody protests in several countries and Al Qaeda's terror threats'.
