Chechens demonstrate against French magazine cartoons

SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – Thousands of people gathered in the centre of Grozny, the capital of Russia’s Muslim North Caucasus region of Chechnya to demonstrate against the French magazine caricatures. An AFP journalist at the event put the attendance figure at hundreds of thousand and the authorities said more than one million people took part in the rally.

“This is a protest against those who support the publication of caricatures,” Ramzan Kadyrov, the Chechen President, told the demonstrators. “We say firmly that we will never allow anyone to go unpunished for insulting our religion,” Kadyrov said.
