Charlie Hebdo has just published a graphic novel of the life of Mohammed. 

More on the background, in-depth (from Yabiladi)

“It is a biography authorised by Islam since it was edited by Muslims,” said Stephane Charbonnier (‘Charb’), who was also the illustrator of the book whose front page shows the prophet leading a camel through the desert. AFP reports.

The author, Zineb El Rhazoui, is Franco-Moroccan.

She has previously defended Charlie’s cartoons of Mohammed, saying, “Charlie a caricaturé le pape, pourquoi pas Mahomet?» Charlie has caricatured the Pope, why not Mohammed? Here.

AFP do not publish this front page picture but we do,

We all know what happened last time Charlie published satirical cartoons of the founder of Islam…..
