Denmark stiffens sentence for cartoonist attacker
by Mette Fraende
A Danish appeals court Wednesday lengthened the prison sentence of a Somali man to 10 years from nine for attempting to kill a cartoonist whose 2005 drawing of the Prophet Mohammad provoked Muslim outrage.
Muhudiin Mohamed Geele broke into the home of cartoonist Kurt Westergaard with an axe on New Year's Day last year.
The 29-year old was sentenced to nine years imprisonment in February after he was found guilty of attempted terrorism, manslaughter and violence against a police officer.
