Berlin court OKs Prophet Mohammed's caricatures

A far-right group won the right from a Berlin court Thursday to display provocative caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed during planned demonstrations outside mosques this weekend.

The administrative court in Berlin ruled that the group, Pro Deutschland, could brandish copies of Danish cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed first published in 2005 which sparked violent protests around the globe.

Islamic law prohibits depictions of the Prophet.

Police are bracing for clashes at the Berlin demonstrations after violence during similar protests by the extreme right against the Islamic Salafist community earlier this year in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
