Cartoon trial: Kurt Westergaard's attacker convicted
A Somali who broke into the home of a Danish cartoonist who caricatured the Prophet Muhammad has been convicted of attempted murder and terrorism.
Mohamed Geele, 29, may face a 12-year sentence in prison for his attack on Kurt Westergaard, 75, who avoided injury by sheltering in a panic room.
But he was acquitted of a separate charge of attempting to murder a policeman trying to arrest him.
Geele, who was wounded by police after the attack, denied the charges.
