New agitations over cartoons of Prophet Mohammed
Wednesday, October 11, 2006
The footage shows party youth members in a competition to draw cartoons, during a summer camp in August.
Iran lodged a protest over the issue, saying it was "deplorable that the extremist elements in Danish society have attempted to sabotage Denmark's relations with the Islamic countries once again".
Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen called the drawings "tasteless" and "unacceptable", but insisted that he cannot control content shown in the media.
Two youths featured in the film have gone into hiding.
In 2005 there was also trouble over Danish cartoons of Mohammed.
