Daily Times, Dubai United Arab Emirates: - The Danish cartoonist, Kurt Westergaard, made his fame in Arab societies through his cartoons of the Muslim prophet, Muhammad, which led some to call for his killing.

He created controversy within Arab and Islamic societies in 2005, when rumors spread that he was paralyzed, and sometimes even claimed that he had been assassinated, but these rumors did not last long.

Kurt's family, 86, announced that he died in his sleep, after a long illness.

The Danish painter had caused a strong crisis between his country and Islamic countries, after he published - on September 12 - a cartoon offensive to the Prophet Muhammad, and many demonstrations erupted in the Islamic countries as well as in a number of European countries.

Kurt was referred to retirement from his work in a Danish newspaper in 2010, and has since remained in a secret place under police guard, after the arrest of a Somali national inside his residence with a bladed weapon to kill the Danish painter.
