Navideshahed: Protesters have gathered outside French Embassy in Cairo to express their anger over recent publication of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) cartoons by a French magazine.

During the Friday rally, demonstrators chanted anti-US and anti-France slogans, calling on the government to cut ties with US and France.

This comes after French weekly Charlie Hebdo published cartoons featuring a figure resembling Islam’s Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) on September 19.

Earlier on Wednesday, French foreign ministry in Paris issued a statement saying that France would close its consulates and schools in around 20 Muslim countries on Friday due to security concerns.
