About two dozen Palestinian protesters stormed the German cultural center in Gaza City, smashing windows, breaking doors and burning the German flag, to protest cartoons deemed insulting to the Prophet Muhammad. Down the street from the cultural center, about 30 Palestinians threw stones at the European Commission building, also to protest the cartoons, before police brought them under control. About 50 schoolchildren and teenagers gathered at one corner of the street to try to resume the attacks on the two buildings, but Palestinian riot police, armed with batons, pushed them back. The youths threw stones at the police, and then fled. The cartoons, which have created a furor across the Muslim world, were first published in Denmark, and then in newspapers elsewhere in Europe in a show of solidarity with press freedoms.
