A jury found a Web site designer guilty Thursday of stirring up racial hatred during a protest against the publication of cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad. Mizanur Rahman, 23, was also accused of inciting murder, but the jury deadlocked on that count. The march to the Danish Embassy in February was meant as a protest against the publication of the cartoons in Danish and other European newspapers.
