Danish court to rule on lawsuit over cartoons

October 26, 2006 10:58

A Danish court was set to announce its verdict Thursday in a defamation lawsuit against the newspaper that published contentious cartoons of Islam's Prophet Muhammad last year. A group of seven Muslim organizations filed the lawsuit against Jyllands-Posten in March, saying they felt the 12 cartoons were defamatory and injurious. "The judge has to find out whether freedom of speech weighs heavier than the fact that some people feel they were offended," media expert Oluf Joergensen told the TV2 channel.
