Charlie Hebdo reaction: "Why are they doing a picture again of our prophet?"

Will what has happened in France disrupt relations between Muslims and other communities here in Britain?

French magazine Charlie Hebdo has released a new edition which depicts the Prophet Muhammad, a week after the deadly attack on its office.

BBC Radio 4 Today reporter Sima Kotecha has been to Slough in Berkshire where there is a large Muslim population and heard a range of views, some controversial.

One anonymous speaker told the Today programme:

"I think it's escalating things further when there was a chance to draw a line under it...they are purposely trying to antagonise people..why are they doing a picture again of our prophet?"

"Something needs to be done to stop people disrespecting our prophet".
