A man charged with soliciting murder in connection with angry protests over the Prophet Muhammad cartoons was remanded in custody Saturday by a British court. Abdul Muhid, 23, appeared at Bow Street Magistrates' Court in central London. His next appearance will be at the Central Criminal Court on June 23. He is one of six men charged over their alleged involvement in the London demonstrations in February against the cartoons, first published in a Danish paper in September. In the rally, some 400 people walked from a mosque to the Danish Embassy in London. Some carried placards with slogans such as "Europe your 9/11 will come," "behead the one who insults the prophet," "be prepared for the real Holocaust," and "massacre those who insult Islam." At Saturday's hearing, Muhid spoke only to give his name, London address and date of birth. He is charged with two counts of soliciting to murder.
