Danish Police Shoot Somali Man Trying To Enter Home Of Mohammed Cartoonist

I wonder how many days it will be before the word “Muslim” is used, if ever?

Danish police last night shot and wounded a 27-year-old man trying to enter the home of Kurt Westergaard, whose controversial cartoon of Islam’s prophet sparked riots across the Muslim world five years ago .

Police confirmed an “incident” at the house in Viby, near the city of Aarhus. Danish media expressed fears that it might have been an attempt on the life of the cartoonist, who had been targeted in previous plots.

An “incident?”

Ten police cars attended the scene and the road was blocked. Police said that the intruder, said to be of Somali origin, was armed with what they described as an axe or a hammer. Bomb disposal experts were searching the house for explosives.

Of course, it could end up being a simple attempt at robbery, but, I wouldn’t bet on it! Westgaard was home, and ran into his panic room and called the police.

Over at The Jawa Report, Howie posts from a different story, translated, that there were three men involved, and points to a CNN story that there was a knife involved and one of the perps cracked open a house window.

The Houston Chronicle has this to say

Police foiled an attempt to kill an artist who drew cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad that sparked outrage in the Muslim world, the head of Denmark’s intelligence service said Saturday.

Jakob Scharf, who heads the PET intelligence service, said a 28-year-old Somalia man was armed with an ax and a knife when he attempted to enter Kurt Westergaard’s home in Aarhus shortly after 10 p.m. (2100 GMT) on Friday.

The attack was “terror related,” Scharf said in a statement.

The arrested man has according to PET’s information close relations to the Somali terrorist group, al-Shabaab, and al-Qaida leaders in eastern Africa,” he said.

Still no word if this was Muslim related.
