Cartoons provocation reaches New Zealand

A contact in New Zealand writes: “The cartoons have been splashed across Wellington’s Dominion Post newspaper today. On the front page is an article taking Muslims to task and calling their response ‘a test of Islamic tolerance’. The entire front page of the ‘B’ world news section is taken up with the cartoons and an article written, unusually, by a Dominion Post reporter, Hank Schouten (who usually writes defence stories), rather than the usual agency reports.”
