Groups representing Britain's Muslim community said Thursday they met with the Danish ambassador in London to discuss their anger over a series of drawings of the Prophet Muhammad published in Denmark. And the British Broadcasting Corp. said Thursday that it will air the controversial images as part of news programs, emphasizing that the drawings will be shown "responsibly" and in context "to give audiences an understanding of the strong feelings evoked by the story." Representatives of the Muslim Association of Britain and the Muslim Council of Britain were hoping to secure an apology from the Danish ambassador. But Ahmed El-Sheikh, president of the Muslim Association of Britain, said they left Wednesday's "very constructive" meeting with simply an assurance that Denmark's government is equally concerned. "We need a simple message to the Muslim community which condemns that newspaper," El-Sheikh said. "We need to single out that paper. We are not happy."
