Saudi Gazette | LONDON — Thousands of British Muslims protested against caricatures in French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, in a demonstration near the office of Prime Minister David Cameron on Sunday.

The crowd marched to Downing Street holding signs reading "Charlie and the abuse factory", "We love Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) more than our lives", and "To insult is not freedom".

Speakers addressed the protest and held communal prayers, before representatives delivered a petition signed by over 100,000 British Muslims to Cameron's office.

The petition describes caricatures as "an affront to the norms of civilized society". — AFP
