Roberto Calderoli, Italian reform minister, announces that he will wear a t-shirt with the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons in defiance of the Muslims rioting against them. That evening, during a live interview, he says he indeed has such a shirt on and reveals a t-shirt with a caricature of Muhammad.

The shirt which Roberto Calderoli wars is not one of the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons, though. It's actually another cartoon published by France Soir on the same day that it published the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons. So Roberto Calderoli didn't wear or reveal any of the cartoons which were part of the rioting, but Muslims in Libya will riot over this anyway, leading to Roberto Calderoli being forced to resign.
