UNITED KINGDOM---The Victoria & Albert Museum in London has removed from its website the image of an artwork depicting the prophet Muhammad, the Guardian reports. The move was triggered by growing security concerns, following the terrorist attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which was targeted for publishing caricatures of the Prophet (see 12 Killed at Magazine Previously Attacked for Satirical Cartoons and Prophet Muhammad is Back on Charlie Hebdo's Cover).
