More than half of Danes are critical of a decision by at least 17 Danish newspapers to reprint a controversial caricature of the Prophet Mohammed in February, a poll published on Monday showed.

More than 58 percent of those questioned in Monday's poll said it was wrong to reprint the cartoon, according to the Ramboell Management survey in the daily Jyllands-Posten.

Conducted by telephone from March 10 to 13, the survey questioned 1,049 Danes over the age of 17.

The findings are in sharp contrast to the broad public support for the first publication of 12 cartoons of the prophet in Jyllands-Posten in September 2005.
