A speaker at a rally protesting against cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed was convicted Thursday of inciting murder. Mizanur Rahman, 24, of London, spoke at a February 2006 demonstration protesting the publication in Europe of the cartoons, first published in Denmark's Jyllands-Posten daily. Prosecutors showed video of Rahman speaking about British soldiers and saying, "We want to see them coming home in body bags. We want to see their blood running in the streets of Baghdad." Rahman also had placards calling for the beheading and annihilation of anyone who insulted Islam.
