Egypt decries 'odious' Swedish cartoon
Egypt's lawmakers Tuesday condemned the publication by a Swedish newspaper of a cartoon of Islam's Prophet Mohammed(PBUH), saying such "odious" acts fanned hatred.

"We regret this indecent behaviour," said a statement from the parliament's foreign affairs committee.

Muslims worldwide should inform their respective ambassadors of their unhappiness, the statement said, calling also for those responsible for "this odious crime" to be punished.

The Egyptian parliament's Arab Affairs Committee Monday called for those responsible for the publication to face justice to avoid a repetition of the 2006 outcry.
