Photo of the Day

FILE - This Sept. 8, 2012 file photo shows author Salman Rushdie posing for a photo as he promotes the movie "Midnight's Children" during the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto. Rushdie is dismissing the latest threat against his life as just talk. "This was essentially one priest in Iran looking for a headline," the author of "The Satanic Verses" said Tuesday, Sept. 18, as he spoke at a Barnes & Noble in New York. Iran's Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in 1989 declared Rushdie's novel was blasphemous and called for his death. A semi-official Iranian religious foundation headed by Ayatollah Hassan Saneii has raised the bounty for Rushdie from $2.8 million to $3.3 million after recent protests against an anti-Islamic film that helped lead to riots around the Middle East.
