Afghan president postpones trip over prophet film
KABUL, Afghanistan — Afghan President Hamid Karzai has cancelled an official visit to Norway amid concerns over Mideast riots about a film that ridicules Islam's Prophet Muhammad.
Karzai's spokesman Aimal Faizi said on Thursday that the trip will be held at a later date. He did not say why the trip has been postponed.
The Norwegian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that Karzai postponed the trip because he felt he needed to stay at home in light of the serious events in some Arab countries.
Karzai was to have travelled to Oslo late Wednesday to sign an agreement of strategic partnership.
