Iranian students stage protest at French embassy over insulting cartoons
A group of Iranian university and seminary students have gathered in front of the French embassy in the Iranian capital, Tehran, to protest the recent publication of cartoons of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) in a French magazine, Press TV reported.
The protesters chanted slogans against the US, Israel and France on Thursday to express their abhorrence toward the blasphemous move.
They also carried placards with slogans in condemnation of the sacrilegious cartoons.
French weekly Charlie Hebdo published cartoons of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) on Wednesday.
The publication of the offensive cartoons came amid widespread outrage over a US-made film that insults the prophet of Islam.
The sacrilegious movie has sparked a wave of outrage across the Muslim world.
In Iran, students gathered outside the Swiss embassy in Tehran on September 13 to protest the insulting film.
Iranians also took to the streets after the Friday prayers the following day to express their outrage at the sacrilegious movie.
