Cartoonist sent into hiding after Copenhagen attacks
A Swedish cartoonist believed to have been targeted in one of the Copenhagen shootings at the weekend has been sent into hiding, police said Monday.
Lars Vilks -- who has faced several death threats since his cartoon portraying the Prophet Mohammed as a dog was published in a Swedish newspaper in 2007 -- already lives under constant police protection.
But police spokeswoman Ewa-Gun Westford said that Vilks' home in Hoeganaes, southern Sweden, "is not a safe place. And he needs to be in a safe place".
