Street demonstrations against Mohammed caricatures

{jcomments on}

Around 3000 Muslim demonstrators took to the streets in downtown Oslo Friday afternoon to protest against newspaper Dagbladet's publishing of a caricature of the prophet Mohmmed.

The demonstrators carried placards with texts like "We are Muslims, not terrorists" and "Stop the campaign against Muslims".

The demonstrators marched peacefully past the Parliament buildings and down to the Central Station.

The Norwegian Muslim Council had adviced against participating in the demonstration.
