Latest Charlie Hebdo cover continues to roil Muslim world.

    The famed French weekly Charlie Hebdo has continued to draw a somewhat contradictory reaction across the Muslim world. Many Muslims have expressed disgust at the deadly assault on the magazine’s Paris office by Islamic extremists who killed 12 people. However, many also remain deeply offended by the magazine’s record of publishing cartoons lampooning the Prophet Mohammed. Those passions were further inflamed this week when the magazine’s first issue following the attack carried a cover cartoon depicting Mohammed holding a “Je Suis Charlie” sign.

According to mainstream Islamic tradition, any physical depiction of the Prophet Mohammed even a respectful one is considered blasphemous.

In the West African nation of Niger, President Mahamadou Issoufou said at least 10 people have been killed after violent protests broke out against the latest cartoon depicting Mohammed in the French publication.

Mr. Issoufou said that five deaths were reported after demonstrations in the capital of Niamey on Saturday. The victims were inside churches and bars that were set ablaze, he said. On Friday, at least five people were killed in the town of Zinder after prayer services there.
