ISLAMABAD – Pakistani lawmakers are protesting the publication of images of Islam's prophet in the satirical French magazine attacked by extremists last week.
State-run TV reported Thursday that the lawmakers unanimously approved a resolution condemning the publication of the images. It did not say how many legislators were on hand for the vote.
After the vote a group of lawmakers staged a protest in front of parliament, condemning the French magazine.
Two gunmen shot dead 12 people in the attack on the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical magazine that has often angered Muslims by depicting the Prophet Muhammad.
Many Muslims in Pakistan consider such images to be blasphemous.
