Chechen charged with terrorism for allegedly assembling letter bomb for Danish daily
A Chechen-born man was charged with terrorism by Danish prosecutors Tuesday for allegedly preparing a letter bomb that had likely been intended for a newspaper known for publishing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
Denmark's top prosecutor Joergen Steen Soerensen said Lors Doukayev had wanted to "seriously frighten the population" and destabilize the country.
The explosive device went off as Doukayev was assembling it in a Copenhagen hotel last September. It was filled with steel pellets and contained triacetone triperoxide, or TATP, which terrorists used in bombs that killed 52 people in London in 2005.
