Prime Minister Helen Clark said New Zealand could face trade and other sanctions as a result of the cartoons published Saturday in The Dominion Post newspaper in Wellington and the Christchurch Press newspaper, the NZPA news agency reported. More than 700 angry Muslims marched through Auckland, New Zealand's largest city, on Sunday to protest the cartoons' publication. "New Zealand press is free and politicians don't say what the press can print and what it can't," she said. "It is a question of judgment and I don't think, myself, either the publication nor the reaction to it, do anything to bring communities and faiths together here or around the world," she said.
