Egypt's Coptic leader laments Charlie Hebdo cartoons

January 15, 2015

Coptic Orthodox Patriarch Tawadros has expressed his distaste for the anti-Muslim cartoons published by the French satirical journal Charlie Hebdo.

“I refuse any form of personal insult,” said that Egyptian prelate; “and when the insult is related to religions, they cannot be approved neither at a human, nor at a moral and social level.” He said that new cartoons, printed in Charlie Hebdo after the massacre of staff members, remained "offensive."
