Outraged Muslims on Monday demanded an Australian newspaper apologize after it published one of a series of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that have sparked angry protests around the world. The News Corp.-owned Courier-Mail, the biggest newspaper in the Queensland state capital Brisbane, apparently became the first newspaper in Australia to publish one of the Danish caricatures on Saturday despite warnings from Muslim groups. But the low-key cartoon that illustrated an article about an attack on the Danish embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, by angry Muslims did not catch national attention until Monday. The Islamic Council of Queensland president Abdul Jalal said the paper should apologize to the state's Muslims.
