“Can’t. Won’t.” Danes stand firm on apology demands

A group of ten Danish lawmakers, have cancelled a trip to Tehran because the Iranian ambassador asked them to condemn the recent republication of drawings of Mohammed.

17 Danish newspapers reprinted the Turbomb Motoon in their reports of a foiled murder plot against its creator, Kurt Westergaard.

Mette Vestergaard, a member of the parliament’s Foreign Policy Committee, said:

The Iranian ambassador asked the Foreign Policy Committee to condemn the drawings. They can’t and they won’t.
