Three charged in Sweden with conspiring to kill cartoonist
by Robert Woodward
Three people have been charged with plotting to murder a Swedish cartoonist whose depiction of the Prophet Mohammad stirred Muslim outrage around the world, the Swedish Prosecution Authority said Tuesday.
Lars Vilks has been the subject of several death threats since his drawings were published in 2005. A Pennsylvania woman known as "Jihad Jane" pleaded guilty earlier this year to plotting to kill Vilks.
