Brothers jailed for Vilks arson attack
The two brothers accused of fire-bombing the home of Swedish Muhammad cartoonist Lars Vilks, have been imprisoned, with the older brother being served a three year sentence and the younger two years.
The brothers, from Landskrona in the south of Sweden, faced charges of arson at Helsingborg district court, a crime that carries a penalty of 2-8 years imprisonment.
The prosecutor had sought a six year sentence for the elder brother, a 21-year-old, and four years for his 19-year-old younger brother.
