Speaking to AA correspondent on Thursday regarding the latest cartoon crisis in France, Paris Mufti Halil Ebubekir recalled that the magazine had also published caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad in 2006.

"We heard that a lawsuit was again opened against this magazine, but I think that it will remain inconclusive," he said.
Muslim community in France must put pressure on parliamentarians and senators for preparation of a new law, he said.
