rench authorities are beefing up security at home and abroad after the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo published cartoons mocking the Prophet Mohammad. The decision to run the cartoons comes amid bloody protests in the Muslim world after a filmmaker in the U.S. made an anti-Islam video painting Mohammad as a pedophile, womanizer, and fraud. The magazine's front cover depicts an Orthodox Jew pushing a turban-clad man in a wheelchair saying "You mustn't mock" under the headline "Untouchable 2," a reference to a popular French film about a paralyzed wealthy white man and his black assistant.
