The French government said Wednesday that it planned on temporarily shutting down premises including embassies and schools in 20 countries on Friday,after a French magazine ridiculed the Prophet Mohammed by portraying him naked in cartoons.

The move threatened to fuel the anger of Muslims around the world who are already incensed by a film depicting him as a womanizing buffoon.

Riot police were deployed to protect the Paris offices of satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo after it hit the newsstands with a cover showing an Orthodox Jew pushing the turbaned figure of Mohammed in a wheelchair. On the inside pages, several caricatures of the Prophet showed him naked.
