Newspaper Editor Could Face Death Penalty For Publishing Cartoons

From BBC:

Yemeni prosecutors have called for a newspaper editor to be sentenced to death for showing cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad, his paper says.

Muhammad al-Asadi was arrested after his publication, the Yemen Observer, showed the Danish cartoons in February.


He denies the charges of offending Islam, under which he is being tried.

The English-language newspaper has had its licence to publish suspended, although its staff have continued to produce material online.

Prosecutors reportedly requested that the Yemen Observer be closed permanently and have its property and assets confiscated.

The paper's website reported that the prosecution lawyers cited precedents from Muslim history when the prophet was insulted by a woman and then praised her killer.
Once again, the prophet leading by example. A death sentence for free speech/press/expression.

But, but Muslims keep telling me that Mohammed was a peaceful man who never had anybody assassinated! Surely they couldn't have been lying to me? Could they? /sarcasm
