Masked gunmen on Monday took over an office used by the European Union to protest the publication of cartoons deemed insulting to Islam's Prophet Muhammad.

About five gunmen stormed the building, closing the office down, while 10 other armed men stood outside.

One of the militants said they were protesting the drawings, published last September in the Danish paper Jyllands-Posten.

The caricatures have sparked a wave of denunciations across the Islamic world.
