Arson attack on German paper for Mohammed cartoon

A German newspaper in the northern German city of Hamburg that reprinted Prophet Mohammed cartoons from the French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo was the target of an arson attack early Sunday. No one was hurt. “Rocks and then a burning object were thrown through the window,” a police spokesman told AFP. “Two rooms on lower floors were damaged but the fire was put out quickly.”

The daily, the Hamburger Morgenpost, printed three Charlie Hebdo cartoons following the massacre in Paris. The headline read, “This much freedom must be possible.”
