A mob of angry Chinese students protested at Massey University yesterday after Chairman Mao was lampooned on the cover of the student newspaper. Students likened the cover of Chaff, which this week satirises women’s magazine Cosmopolitan, to the anti-Muslim cartoons circulated around the world in February.

Students gathered in tight circles outside the library yesterday, signing a petition demanding an apology. Students also want remaining copies pulled out of circulation. Tensions flared as agitated students confronted Chaff editor Edrei Valath and news editor Matt Russell.
