BOMB BLAST IN COPENHAGEN… Jyllands-Posten Offices Targeted
Islam in Europe is following this attack.
The suspect is described as ‘North-African-looking’ and speaks French
The bomber was carrying a map to the Jyllands-Posten offices. Jyllands-Posten published the Mohammad cartoons back in September 2005.
Denmark raised its terror attack preparedness Saturday, the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the United States, after a man set off a small explosion in a Copenhagen hotel Friday.
Daily newspaper Ekstrabladet, citing police sources, said police had found a map with the address of daily Jyllands-Posten’s headquarters in the city of Arhus circled among the man’s belongings.
Jyllands-Posten’s publication in 2005 of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad provoked protests in the Middle East, Africa and Asia in which at least 50 people died.
