Not a Tiny Minority of Extremists in some obscure mosque — no, these were members of the Nigerian Parliament. From the BBC, with thanks to Twostellas:
Nigerian MPs cheered in the northern majority Muslim state of Kano as Danish and Norwegian flags were burned in a ceremony in the parliament premises.
The flags were torched to show disapproval of the publication in Denmark and Norway of cartoons satirising the Prophet Muhammad.
Earlier Kano state MPs passed a resolution to call off multi-million dollar trade negotiations with Denmark.
In Niger, thousands took part in banned protests against the cartoons….
In Somalia, a teenage boy died after protesters attacked police on Monday….
The BBC’s Ado Saleh in Kano says some 200 people, including the 40 state parliamentarians, attended the flag burning.
