Danish man who burned Quran charged with blasphemy
A man who filmed himself burning the Quran has become the first person to be charged under Denmark's blasphemy law in 46 years.
The 42-year-old filmed himself burning a copy of Islam's holy book in his back yard in December 2015. He then posted the video on the anti-Islamic Facebook group, "Yes to freedom - no to Islam" along with the words, "Consider your neighbour: it stinks when it burns."
Danish prosecutor Jan Reckendorff announced his decision to bring charges in a press statement issued on Wednesday afternoon.
