About 5,000 people gathered on Tuesday for Pakistan's biggest protest yet against the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad in European newspapers.

The rally in the northwestern city of Peshawar was one of many that have erupted across the Muslim world since the cartoons were printed.

The drawings first appeared in Denmark in September and were later reprinted in other European papers.

Police said about 5,000 people were protesting, and some burnt effigies of the Danish prime minister and a cartoonist who drew the Prophet Mohammad.
