So reports Norway’s Aftenposten, but the story seems to depend on one source: the irrepressible Hamid Mir. Still, there have been enough death fatawa and bounties on these poor men to make this plausible. “Will kill Mohammed caricaturists,” from Aftenposten (thanks to LL):
Twelve terrorists are headed to Denmark to assassinate the artists behind the controversial caricatures of the prophet Mohammed published in newspaper Jyllands-Posten.
This claim stems from Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir, newspaper Politiken reports on its web site, citing discussion of the case in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
According to Danish terrorism expert Lars Erslev Andersen, it is highly unlikely that the terrorists, if they are en route, will ever arrive in Denmark, though he conceded that the threat is certainly unpleasant for those concerned.
