Mohammed Cartoonist Attacker Gets Nine Years; Somalian Man Guilty for Attempting Terrorism

The Copenhagen Post website reports today (February 4, 2011) that the man who broke into Mohammed cartoonist Kurt Westergaard's home in Denmark with an axe and knife on New Year's Day last year, has been sentenced to nine years in prison for attempting to commit an act of terrorism.

The 29-year-old Somalian, Mohamed Geele, will be deported after he serves his sentence.

A unanimous jury found Geele guilty yesterday (February 3).

In addition to the terrorism charge, he was also found guilty of attempted murder against Westergaard, whose drawings of Mohammed wearing a bomb-shaped turbin was one of 12 depictions of the prophet published in 2005 in Danish newspapers.
