Three men cleared of plotting to kill Swedish artist's murder
Monsters and Critics
A Swedish court on Friday acquitted three men charged with plotting to kill artist Lars Vilks, whose depiction of the Muslim prophet Mohammed as a dog sparked outrage worldwide in 2007.
Abdi Aziz Mahamud, and Salar Sami Mahmood and Abdi Weli Mohamud, Somalis who hold Swedish citizenship, were however fined for violating a law against carrying a knife in public, the court said.
The trio were arrested in September on suspicion of planning to kill Vilks.
