The furious backlash against French magazine Charlie Hebdo's cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed rumbled on Monday with a huge rally in Chechnya, Afghan protesters burning the French flag and Gazans levelling threats against France.An AFP journalist at the event put the attendance figure at several hundred thousand, while authorities in the tightly controlled region said more than one million people -- almost the entire population of the republic -- took part in the rally.Kadyrov attacked the French government for backing Charlie Hebdo magazine's right to run a Mohammed cartoon on its front cover a week after two Islamist gunmen -- saying they were avenging the publication of previous Mohammed caricatures -- massacred 12 people in an attack on its office in Paris.Although Russia's leadership extended its condolences to France after 17 people were killed in three days of Islamist attacks, and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov participated in a subsequent unity march held in Paris, pro-Kremlin commentators and Muslims accused the cartoonists of provoking the attack.
