Danish cartoonist attacker is jailed
Friday 04 February 2011
A Somali man convicted of terrorism for breaking into the home of a Danish cartoonist who had caricatured the Prophet Muhammad has been jailed for nine years.
The Aarhus city court ruled today that Muhideen Mohammed Geelle should be deported after his sentence.
The 29-year-old entered Kurt Westergaard's home armed with an axe on New Year's Day 2010. Westergaard locked himself inside a panic room and was unharmed. Police arrived and shot Geelle in the leg.
Geelle was found guilty yesterday.
Westergaard's drawing was one of 12 cartoons of Muhammad published by a Danish newspaper in September 2005, triggering violent protests across the Muslim world four months later.
