A cartoonist who created a religious storm with a tongue-in-cheek encouragement to draw images of the Muslim Prophet Mohamed has gone into hiding after a threat to her safety.
Molly Norris, who published an illustration in April on her website entitled "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day", was told by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation to "go ghost", according to the Seattle Weekly newspaper, to which was a regular contributor.
"On the insistence of top security specialists at the FBI," Ms Norris is "moving, changing her name and essentially wiping away her identity," a Seattle Weekly report said on Thursday. The Seattle office of the FBI did not return a call to comment on the case.
