Bush calls Danish PM with support in cartoon row

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - U.S. President George W. Bush called
Denmark's prime minister on Tuesday to voice support for the
Nordic country, whose embassies are the target of violent
protests over cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad.

"I am happy to inform you that just a few minutes ago,
President Bush called me to express support and solidarity with
Denmark in the light of the violence against Danish and other
diplomatic missions," said Prime Minister Anders Fogh

"We agreed that the way ahead is through dialogue and
tolerance, not violence," Rasmussen told a news conference.
