In Pictures: Angry Muslims Protest Against Turkish Paper that Published Charlie Hebdo Cartoons

Protesters took to the streets of Istanbul after Turkish newspaper Cumhuriyet published a four-page supplement of cartoons from the latest edition of Charlie Hebdo.

The paper chose not to print the famous front-cover showing Mohammed crying in the suppliment, but it did show it in two columns elsewhere in the paper.

It had initially planned to reprint the whole magazine, but scaled back due to security concerns.
