Police disrupt Islamic terror plot in Denmark
December 30, 2010
Police in Denmark and Sweden have arrested five Islamic militants, who were reportedly planning to “kill as many people as possible” in a massacre designed as a reprisal against the publication of cartoons that ridiculed the prophet Mohammed.
Denmark’s justice minister said that the plot, which was interrupted by the arrests, represented the “most serious attack” ever contemplated in the country. The Islamic militants reportedly planned to enter the offices of Jyllands-Posten, the newspaper the published the notorious cartoons in 2005, and open fire on passersby with automatic weapons.
Police believe that the 5 men arrested had links to international terror networks. Further arrests are expected.
