The students carried signs which aped the 'Je Suis Charlie' posters which became synonymous with the Western peace rallies
Students marched through Mogadishu on Saturday morning, three days after the commemorative edition of the satirical magazine went on sale.
The magazine features a cartoon of the Prophet Mohamed shedding a tear underneath the words 'All is forgiven', after 12 of Charlie Hebdo's staff were killed in a massacre earlier this month.
But the use of the Prophets image has angered many Muslims around the world, with protests taking place from Somalia to Niger, and Pakistan to Jordan.
