Copenhagen Post: Danish newspaper apologises for reprinting Mohammed cartoons

A Danish newspaper which reprinted the 2005 cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in an act of solidarity following a murder plot against one of the cartoonists in 2008 has issued an apology to eight Muslim organisations to stave off future legal action against the paper.

Politiken was one of 11 Danish newspapers to reprint the cartoons, which were originally published by Jyllands-Posten, but has apologised for any offence caused.
