Cartoon to miss bus


WASHINGTON: The winning entry from a Prophet Mohammed cartoon contest will not be allowed on ads on Washington’s public transporta­tion, officials said, angering competitio­n organisers.

The cartoon was part of a contest that came under attack in Texas last month, when two gunmen opened fire on event participan­ts.

The competitio­n was staged in Texas by an anti-Muslim group, founded by Pamela Geller who said not running them is a violation of free speech.
