Pencil lines continue to offend

Trust our respective governments to come up with an acceptable solution:

Iran summoned the Danish ambassador to Tehran in protest over the reprinting of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad by leading Danish newspapers, state TV reported on Thursday.

The report said that during a late Wednesday meeting between Foreign Ministry officials and the Danish envoy, Soeren Haslund, the Iranian side strongly condemned the reprint earlier in the day and demanded the Danish government take a "serious approach" to the case and prevent its recurrence.
