The Prophet Mohammad, or is it The Spoof's editor

Riots are spreading throughout the Middle East as more and more protests are made at the publishing of a picture of Mohammed on the spoof website The Spoof.

In an article about the riots, the website features a small picture of Mohammed, taken from Wikipedia which has a number of the images. This has sparked the riots, which has in turn caused the picture to be published.

There have been protests in over 30 cities, with hundreds of demonstrators burning effigies of The Spoof and also bizarrely, burning effigies of the prophet Mohammed.

At the protests it is reported that a number of bearded people have been killed due to their resemblance to the Mohammed character, who coincidentally also looks like the editor of The Spoof.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
