    Danish cartoonist intruder shot

    BBC News - Danish cartoonist intruder shot

    Danish police have shot and wounded a man who entered the home of Kurt Westergaard, whose cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad sparked a major row.

    Danish media say Mr Westergaard was in his home in Copenhagen with his wife and grandchild when a man broke in and threatened him with a hammer.

    Mr Westergaard is said to have raised the alarm and police entered the house and shot the intruder.

    Mr Westergaard's cartoons were printed by Jyllands-Posten in 2006.

    They triggered violent protests, with Danish embassies attacked around the world and dozens killed in riots.

    This is breaking News just come across the wire so I won't make a comment till I see the rest of the story. But I will say if this person is a Radical Muslim I want the Muslim World come out and actually show that they want a new day and call this what it is an act of Terror.

    Where's your outrage that the hammer manufacturers of the world have been silent?

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I would hardly call that an act of terrorism, even though it was uncalled for and against the law.

    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.

    Seems pretty likely that the cartoons were the motivation for this.

    From the article:
    Islamic militants placed a $1m price on Mr Westergaard's head after he mocked Muslim suicide bombers by depicting the Prophet Muhammad with a bomb in his turban.

    As much as I dislike mocking islamists, I think it's the only way forward.
    It reminds me of another cartoon published in a Swedish daily paper, depicting the King asserting to a former prime minister that, if the order to wear the star was imposed on Denmark's Jews, "We'll all have to wear yellow stars.".

    Would you be so kind as to tell me what the particulars of European immigration policy have to do with this incident, if anything?

    Nothing about this man's immigration / citizenship status was mentioned in the article.
