Plot to Kill Muhammad Cartoonist

Denmark’s intelligence agency have arrested three people that were planning to kill one of the cartoonists of the controversial prophet Muhammad cartoon published in the Danish Jyllands-Posten newspaper. 72 year old cartoonist Kurt Westergaard and his 66 year old wife Gitte Westergaard have been under police protection for the past few months.

Two of the suspects held are Tunisians and the third is a Moroccan Dane.

The cartoonist said “Of course I fear for my life when the police intelligence service say that some people have concrete plans to kill me. But I have turned fear into anger and resentment.” BBC News
