One of Australia's best-known cartoonists, Michael Leunig, on Tuesday denied entering two of his works in an Iranian newspaper's contest for cartoons about the Holocaust, saying they were sent maliciously by someone else. A media report out of Tehran had said Leunig had submitted the first entry in the contest, launched Monday by Hamshahri, one of Iran's top five newspapers, in retaliation for the publication of drawings of the Prophet Muhammad. Leunig vehemently denied the claim, saying he had been "set up horribly, maliciously."
