Danish court finds Chechen guilty over bombing
by John Acher and Jakob Vesterager
A Danish court on Monday found a 25-year-old ethnic Chechen man guilty of an attempted act of terrorism against a Danish newspaper which in 2005 printed cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad.
Lors Doukaev, a Belgian citizen, was arrested after he accidentally set off a small blast at the Hotel Jorgensen in the centre of the Danish capital on Sept. 10 last year, injuring only himself.
The court found Doukaev sought to attack the offices of the daily Jyllands-Posten whose caricatures of the Prophet sparked Muslim outrage and violent protests in 2006 in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
