A Tunisian children's magazine "Kaws Kouzah” has recently published a detailed step-by-step instruction of how to make a Molotov cocktail. Now the periodical is facing a lawsuit for endangering kids lives.

­The Tunisian Ministry for Women and Family Affairs has expressed concern that the article’s content poses a threat to children’s lives, as it “encourages” the use of Molotov cocktails in acts of “vandalism or terrorism.”

The piece, published under the “knowledge corner” subsection, contained a detailed instruction on the assembly of the deadly mix.  The article, employing colorful illustrations, read a “Molotov cocktail – is a home-made incendiary weapon which consists of a glass bottle and a folded cloth dipped in a flammable liquid – oil, alcohol, petrol.”

The article also provided origin of the term. 

“The name was coined by Finnish soldiers in World War II in honor of Vyacheslav Molotov, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Soviet Union during the Winter War, also known as the Soviet-Finnish war of 1939-1940.”

But the most shocking section of the description found by the ministry read, “the unit should be ignited and thrown at the enemy. After the initial contact, the bottle breaks and penetrates the target.”

Last month thousands of enraged Muslim activists rallied around the American embassy in Tunisia until finally storming it, burning the American flag, looting property and setting buildings on fire. 

Elsewhere in the Muslim world, demonstrators used Molotov cocktails as they expressed their anger over the kitsch movie Innocence of Muslims, mocking the Prophet Mohammed.
