"This one apparently, made the mistake of calling his teddy bear Muhammad." 6 December, 2007

Reference Number: DCDL-0004544

Shows a tourist bus driving through the Sudanese desert. In the background is a pyramid and in the foreground stands a headless statue with its head lying on the sand, (shades of Ozymandias?). The tourist guide tells the tourists that this statue called his teddy bear Muhammad. Refers to the case in Sudan of an English woman who narrowly escaped severe punishment when she allowed children in a class she taught to name a teddy bear Muhammad. She was saved by swift intervention by diplomats.
