Norwegian held over cartoonist plot
Norwegian police have arrested a suspect who was preparing a deadly attack against a Danish cartoonist behind a controversial caricature of the Prophet Mohammed, a Norwegian newspaper reported on Saturday.
The suspect, who is in his 30s, was detained on Tuesday after Norwegian intelligence discovered Kurt Westergaard was the target of an assassination plot involving automatic weapons and explosives, according to the Dagbladet daily.
Westergaard revealed earlier this week that he had cut short a visit to Norway after police caught wind of a possible attack against him.
