  • [01] Over the Reprinting of a Drawing of the Prophet

    Incidents in Copenhagen

    Rioting broke out in Copenhagen after papers reprinted a drawing of the Prophet Mohammad, which triggered a major clash with extremist islamic groups some two years ago. Young Muslims torched vehicles and dust bins, while a school located in a suburb was set on fire.

    Having arrested 17 rioters, police have blamed the incidents that upset the city on immigrants children.

    The newspapers head claimed that the move to republish the controversial drawing was a sing of solidarity for one of the drawings makers who survived a murder plan against him.

    In the meantime, an ongoing debate has broke out on the fate of the two Tunisians accused of the attempted murder attack. The Danish authorities decision to have them deported without a full legal review clashes with several humanitarian groups.

    Founder of the Museum of Cycladic Art, Dolly Goulandris breathed her last on Friday evening, after battling with cancer. In 1985, she founded The Nicholas P. Goulandris Foundation, which she led for years. In the next year, she opened the Museum of Cycladic Art to house the rich collection of Cycladic and ancient Greek artefacts she had been collecting with her husband since 1960. The Museum currently boasts more than 3,000 exhibits, while temporary exhibitions are hosted every now and then. Her funeral was scheduled for coming Tuesday.

    The two Democrat rivals are vying to shed light to their differences, as the primary race has reached a turning point. Obama has won more electorates, while Clinton has focused her campaign on the states of Ohio and Pennsylvania, which she is likely to win, as the latest polls have suggested. The issue of weapon possession does not run high on the pre-election campaign, yet both Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama are against the use of weapons.
