Muslim Terrorists Plotted To Choke Mohammed Cartoonist


Denmark police have arrested two Tunisians who were charged with plotting to strangle to death the cartoonist whose picture of the Muslim prophet Mohammed's head with a turban-bomb touched off a violent reaction in the Muslim world. Media in Denmark reported that the two suspects, aged 25 and 36, planned to kill the cartoonist, Kurt Westergaard, earlier this year.

The Danish Justice Ministry has ordered that the two men be expelled without trial. Intelligence agents reportedly searched one of the Tunisian's homes last year and found an Arabic document that described the cartoonist's home and noted there was no guard dog present.
