Libya said Sunday it has decided to shut down its embassy in the Danish capital, Copenhagen, to protest the Danish media's "insult of Prophet Mohammad."
The Libyan foreign ministry said in a statement the move was also in response to the Danish government's failure to take a "responsible position" regarding this issue.
It warned it will adopt "economic measures" against the Scandinavian country, but gave no details.
Arab and Muslim countries, as well as the 57-member Organization of Islamic Conference, have condemned Denmark, which apologized to Saudi Arabia, for not taking enough measures to stop the "media onslaught on Islam."
They have called for boycotting Danish products and for a fatwa, or religious decree, to forbid the consumption of Danish goods.
