The Return of the Cartoon Jihad
Yesterday in Denmark, a Somali armed with an axe and a knife was shot after trying to break into the home of the cartoonist who drew the infamous cartoon of Mohammed with a bomb for a turban: Somali shot after allegedly attempting to attack Danish cartoonist.
(CNN) — A Somali man was shot as he allegedly tried to enter the home of Danish political cartoonist Kurt Westergaard — known for his controversial depictions of the Muslim prophet Mohammad — on Saturday, police said.
The 27-year-old man, who was not identified, wielded an ax and a knife and cracked a window at Westergaard’s home in Aarhus, said police spokesman Morten Jensen. A home alarm alerted police to the scene at 10 p.m., and they were attacked by the man, he said.
The officers shot the man in the right leg and left hand. He was hospitalized, but was not seriously injured, police said.
