Denmark's prime minister has postponed a visit to India, the Indian foreign ministry said Saturday, as the fallout continues over the Prophet Muhammad cartoons, which first appeared in Danish publications. Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen had been scheduled to arrive in India on April 2 for a five-day visit. But the Indian foreign ministry said in a statement that, "the two sides have found that the proposed timing for the visit was not optimal." The statement gave no explanation, but there have been widespread protests in India, some of which turned violent, against the cartoons that first appeared in a Danish newspaper in September.
