“Bahrain teacher ‘insulted Islam,'” from the Gulf Daily News, September 12:
MANAMA: An American woman was referred to the court yesterday by the Public Prosecution after being charged with insulting the Prophet Mohammed.
The woman, who works as a teacher at a private university in Bahrain, was said to have been reported to the university management by a student, who claimed that she had shown them pictures depicting the Prophet Mohammed improperly dressed.
“The teacher was made to apologise to the students but was told to have insulted the girl who had reported her to the management instead,” said a Public Prosecution spokesman.
