during a university lecture when he presented another drawing

harmed in yesterday`s attack at Karlstad University in central
Sweden and that he continued his lecture on the limits of free
speech after police evicted the protesters from the building.

radical Islamists, said about a dozen people started yelling
and hurling eggs at him when he presented the sketch.
