DC subway system to decide on advocacy group's ad depicting Prophet Mohammad
Washington's transit system is weighing whether to allow a subway ad featuring a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammad that won first prize at an event in Texas this month that was attacked by two gunmen.


The Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority is conducting a standard review of an ad submitted by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, Metro spokesman Mike Tolbert said on Wednesday.


The advertisement calls for Americans to support free speech, and features a cartoon of a bearded, turban-wearing Mohammad waving a sword and shouting: "You can't draw me!"
