A YEMENI court has sentenced a journalist to a year in jail for reprinting Danish satirical caricatures of Islam's Prophet Mohammed which provoked outrage among Muslims around the world earlier this year.

The court convicted Kamal al-Aalafi, editor-in-chief of the al-Rai al-Aam, of offending Prophet Mohammed and also ordered the independent weekly to close for six months, his lawyer Khaled al-Ansi said.
