Terror Attack Suspect Is Found Guilty in Chicago; Planned Attack to Kill Journalists in Copenhagen

The Copenhagen Post website reports that Chicago businessman Tahawuur Hussain Rana was found guilty yesterday (June 9, 2011) of helping to plan an attack on the Copenhagen offices of Jyllands-Posten newspaper.

The Pakistan-Canadian was convicted in Chicago of aiding childhood friend David Headley -- a member of militant Islamist organization Lashkar-e-Talba -- in planning the attack on the Danish newspaper in reprisal for the 2005 publication drawings sarcastically depicting the Muslim prophet Mohammed.

Documents presented during the cases against both Headley and Rana revealed that the attack on the Jyllands-Posten offices would have seen several journalists killed and decapitated.

Headley -- who pleaded guilty in March 2010 -- also revealed the attack would target all Danes at the paper due to the belief that "all Danes were guilty."
