    KHARTOUM (AFP) - Sudanese police have arrested a British school teacher and accused her of insulting the Muslim prophet after allowing six-year-old pupils to name a teddy bear Mohammed, officials said on Monday.
    Gillian Gibbons was arrested on Sunday after parents complained about the incident, understood to have happened a while ago at an English-language private school. She spent the night in custody but has not yet been charged.
    "She was arrested yesterday by the local police and she's currently being held in a police station in Khartoum. We visited her today. She's shaken up but she's alright," said a British embassy spokesman.
    "We're following up with the Sudanese authorities and also with the school who are providing her with legal representation. She's not been charged officially but there are still investigations going on," the spokesman said.
    The British teacher never intended the naming of the bear to cause offence, the embassy added.
    Colleagues said they hoped only that Gibbons, who taught six-year-olds at the school, would be released by Wednesday.
    The headmistress of Unity High School is also British and Britons teach at various fee-paying international schools in the Sudanese capital.
    Islamic Sharia law is enforced in northern Sudan and Islam is the majority religion in what is Africa's biggest country, a former British colony.

    :wow: That'll teach her!!!

    They can name 400% of their children Mohammed, but not a teddy bear?

    Why don't they arrest the kid for naming the kid Mohammed, it's probably some inate racism toward the teacher being British it sounds like

    They said on BBC news they might use the situation to stick one up to the british. This people are petty morans. What can you expect when you got people running around raping and murdering people when they feel like it. Good to see their priorities are in the right place :whatever: :cmad:

    The funny thing is that Bears have more integrity than many of the guys who are named Mohammed.

    Arrest the people who don't live up to the name before arresting a teacher who names a bear Mohammed.

    heh, that's such a weird misspelling.
    I would think that someone who's spelling-challenged would automatically go with morOn...like "ON".

    morAwn looks so exotic and fancy. :huh:
