More Motoon Madness. “Tunisians Had Planned To Strangle Prophet Cartoonist -Report,” from AFP, June 19 (thanks to all who sent this in):
COPENHAGEN (AFP)–Two Tunisians detained in Denmark for allegedly plotting to kill a cartoonist who satirized the Prophet Mohammed, had planned to strangle their target, according to intelligence documents cited by media Thursday.
Documents belonging to the Danish PET intelligence agency indicate the two suspects, aged 26 and 36, had carefully planned the foiled attack on Kurt Westergaard earlier this year, free daily Nyhedsavisen wrote on its Web site.
The youngest of the two Tunisians was a martial arts expert who was supposed to strangle Westergaard, Nyhedsavisen wrote….
According to the Nyhedsavisen report, PET had secretly searched the 26-year- old Tunisian’s home in October 2006 and had discovered a document in Arabic that proved the duo had meticulously planned an attack on Westergaard.
Among other things, the document showed they had staked out the cartoonist’s home and had an overview of how many people lived there, his schedule and the fact that he didn’t have a guard dog, the paper wrote.
