Iran PressAfrica: Somalis set fire to the French flag as well as pictures of President Emmanuel Macron, expressing their disgust with the anti-Islamist actions of French officials and the media.

In recent days, the French magazine 'Charlie Hebdo' has started publishing insulting cartoons about the Holy Prophet of Islam (PBUH).

French President Emmanuel Macron, in a statement far removed from the diplomatic custom and principles of democracy, said that France will continue to publish insulting cartoons against the Holy Prophet of Islam (PBUH).
