Denmark's top prosecutor said Wednesday he will not press charges against the newspaper that first published the Prophet Muhammad cartoons that angered Muslims worldwide. The Foreign Ministry warned the decision could cause "negative reactions" against Danes and warned citizens to be cautious when traveling in Muslim countries. Director of Public Prosecutions Henning Fode upheld the decision of a regional prosecutor who ruled the drawings published in Jyllands-Posten Sept. 30 did not violate Danish law. Fode's decision cannot be appealed. His ruling said the 12 cartoons, one of which shows the prophet wearing a turban shaped like a bomb, did not violate bans on racist and blasphemous speech. "My decision is that there is no violation of the said rules of the Danish Criminal Code," Fode said in a statement.
