Around 70 hardline Muslims threw eggs at the office block housing the Danish Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, on Friday to protest the publication of caricatures of Muhammad in a Danish newspaper. They also took down the Danish national flag and burnt it in a public demonstration of rage. They later stopped briefly outside an Indonesian newspaper which ran one of the cartoons on its website on Thursday to illustrate a story on the uproar generated by them elsewhere in the Muslim world. Editors of Rakyat Merdeka met some of the protesters, but it was not known what they told them.
