VIENNA - Austria's president condemned far-right Freedom Party leader Heinz-Christian Strache for posting a cartoon on his Facebook page that was widely seen as anti-Semitic, the Austria Press Agency reported on Sunday.

The cartoon portrays a fat banker with a hooked nose and six-point star buttons on his sleeve gorging himself at the expense of a thin man representing "the people."

Strache denied being anti-Semitic after the cartoon provoked an outcry and demands from the Jewish community that Austria's political establishment condemn the act.
