Denmark's foreign minister has warned that al-Qaida would exploit the outrage over the Prophet Muhammad drawings, and condemned a Pakistani cleric who offered a US $1 million bounty for killing one of the cartoonists. Per Stig Moeller called the reward "insane" and tantamount to terrorism. "When money is put on the cartoonists' heads, then terror is also being used," Moeller told reporters in Copenhagen on Monday. "It's incitement to murder. Murder is also banned by the Quran."
