Boxer pleads innocent in Danish terror trial
by Richard Steed
A Chechen-born amateur boxer accused of preparing a letter bomb for a Danish newspaper that printed caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad pleaded innocent to terrorism Monday at the start of his trial in Copenhagen.
Lors Doukayev, a 25-year-old citizen and resident of Belgium, pleaded guilty to another charge of illegal weapons possession for bringing a handgun and an explosive substance to Denmark.
Doukayev was arrested in September after a small explosion in a hotel bathroom in Copenhagen. Investigators believe he was trying to assemble a letter bomb when it went off by accident.
