An Egyptian Muslim cleric who described September 11 as a 'comedy film' is touring Australia.

Dr Omar Abdelkafy made the comments in January 2015 shortly after 12 staff of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo were killed in Paris after it published a front-page cartoon mocking the Prophet Mohammad.

The 67-year-old sheikh with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood described the French terrorist attack four years ago, by Muslim extremist brothers Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, as a sequel to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States.
