U.S. cartoonist Molly Norris has been declared a ‘target’ by  Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who has issued a fatwa calling for her death.

The social satirist, who stirred up a religious storm earlier this year with a tongue-in-cheek encouragement to draw images of the Muslim prophet Mohammed, has gone into hiding after threats to her safety.

Cleric al-Awlaki, 39, who is thought to be hiding in Yemen and has links to al Qaeda,  said in the June issue of ‘Inspire’, an English-language magazine for American Muslim youth, that Norris was a ‘prime target’ whose ‘proper abode is hellfire.’
