KABUL, Afghanistan – Hundreds of people have protested in two Afghan cities against the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo over it using a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad on its cover.
The demonstrations in the capital, Kabul, and the western city of Herat took place after Friday prayers. Protesters carried banners proclaiming: "We love Muhammad." They also chanted "Death to America, Israel and France" and "Death to the Enemies of Islam."
A Jan. 7 terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo's Paris office killed 12 people. Many across the Muslim world have protested satirical weekly's first issue after the attack, which shows a drawing of a tearful Prophet Muhammad holding a sign saying "Je suis Charlie."
