Christian areas and churches attacked in Lebanon. From Christian Today, with thanks to Twostellas:
Lebanon has apologised to Denmark for the burning of its embassy at the weekend during protests against a cartoon of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad, in which Christian areas and churches were also attacked.
Sunday”s riots in Beirut and similar outbreaks and attacks on Danish and Norwegian missions in Damascus have been among the worst in the worldwide Muslim protest against cartoons published in a Denmark newspaper, and was also reprinted in some other European newspapers.
The Lebanese government released a statement after a late-night emergency meeting saying, “The cabinet denounces the riots and the targeting of the Danish Embassy which harms the image of a civilised Lebanon. (We) present our apology to the state of Denmark.”
In addition, Lebanese Christians have expressed outrage over riots by Muslim protestors in the Christian Ashrafiyeh district, where a church, as well as cars and shops were destroyed.
