Muslim militants react to editorial cartoons

by on February 2nd, 2006

Two armed groups threatened to target Danes, French and Norwegians in the Palestinian territories after the cartoons were published in their respective countries and gunmen besieged E.U. offices in Gaza.

Foreign journalists, diplomats and aid workers began leaving Gaza as gunmen there threatened to kidnap citizens of France, Norway, Denmark and Germany unless those governments apologize for the cartoon, reports the Associated Press (AP).

“All nationals and those who work in the diplomatic corps of these countries can be considered targets of the Popular Resistance Committee and Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades,” the two Palestinian groups warned.
