Muslims protest in Cape Town

Thousands of chanting Muslims and their supporters marched to Cape Town’s City Hall in today’s lunch hour to present a memorandum to Danish Ambassador Torben Brylle in protest to the initial publication in his country of the controversial cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammad in various comical situations. Traffic in the city centre came to a virtual standstill for a while to allow the march to go ahead peacefully. The march, organised by the Muslim Judicial Council, was led by a strong contingent of women and children. Another march will be held in Pretoria tomorrow.
