    Mail companies refuse to distribute Muhammad caricature

    Sweden's largest direct marketing company has joined the national postal service in refusing to distribute a political newspaper containing a caricature of the Muslim prophet Muhammad.

    Earlier this week Posten decided not to distribute SD-Kuriren - a newspaper produced by the far-right Sweden Democrats - in Svedala in southern Sweden.

    "We want to protect the safety of our mail carriers. This illustration has provoked reactions that have led to death threats," a spokesman for Posten, Per Ljungberg, told Sydsvenskan on Monday.

    On Wednesday marketing company Svensk Direktreklam announced that it too was refusing to deliver the Sweden Democrats' newspaper.

    The company stated that it would only distribute political material emanating from Sweden's current parliamentary parties.

    Sweden Democrat party leader Jimmie Åkesson was infuriated by the companies' decision not to distribute SD-Kuriren.
