Libya announced Sunday it was closing its embassy in Denmark to protest contentious caricatures of Islam's prophet published in a Danish newspaper, becoming the latest Muslim country to angrily condemn the drawings. "Due to Danish authorities not taking a responsible stance in this concern, Libya has decided to close its (embassy) in Copenhagen," said a statement from the Foreign Ministry. The statement said other measures would be taken but did not elaborate. Danish companies in the Middle East face product boycotts, dropped orders and canceled business meetings.
