Gunman tries to shoot anti-Islam writer in Denmark
by Jan M. Olsen
A gunman tried to shoot a Danish writer and prominent critic of Islam on Tuesday, but missed and fled after a scuffle with his intended victim, police and the writer said.
Lars Hedegaard, who heads a group that claims press freedom is under threat from Islam, told The Associated Press he was shaken but not physically injured in the attack at his Copenhagen home.
Police said they were searching for the suspect, whom they described as a "foreign" man aged 20-25.
