(KCEN) -- A French weekly magazine is drawing criticism for publishing cartoons about the prophet Mohammed.
Issues of Charlie Hebdo hit newsstands today with caricatures of the prophet Mohammed and an orthodox Jew on the front cover.
The head of the Paris mosque condemned the magazine and the timing of the publication after deadly protests over an anti-Islam film produced in the United States.
The French foreign minister accused the magazine of fanning the controversy.
Police have been on guard outside Charlie Hebdo's offices since early this morning.
