Puducherry: The Office of the Consul General of France Friday remained closed here as a precautionary measure against possible protests following publication of cartoons of Prophet Mohammed in a French satirical weekly.

Official sources said institutions run by the French government here also remained closed following a circular from the French administration.

The closure of the institutions was part of the measures France had taken to close embassies, cultural centres and schools in 20 countries as a precautionary step against possible protests.
