Anger at Malaysia 'Jesus cartoon'
Thousands of Christians rioted, burned cars, looted businesses in a rampage that left 10 people dead in Malaysia after a picture of Jesus with a cigarette and a can of beer was published in a newspaper.
The part about the picture is true, the rest is drivel. That got you interested didn't it ?
A Malaysian newspaper is facing calls to shut down after it published an image of Jesus holding a cigarette and what appeared to be a can of beer.
Malaysia's Muslim-led government closed two publications last year for carrying controversial cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
