In Copenhagen, Denmark, three men were arrested on
suspicion of terror after police found them with automatic weapons and
ammunition (Associated Press 2012).
The three men were described by the Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET) as a 22-year old citizen of Jordan, a 23-year old Turkish man living in Denmark, and a 21-year old Danish national living in Egypt (Associated Press 2012).
The PET has repeatedly warned that Denmark remains in the cross-hairs of Islamic terrorists since the 2005 publication of 12 caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad in the Jyllands-Posten newspaper (Associated Press 2012). Islamic law prohibits depiction of Mohammad in any form for fear of it causing idoltry (Associated Press 2012).
The three men face a custody hearing on Saturday, and have been preliminarily charged with possessing illegal firearms and are “suspected of having been in the process of preparing a terrorist act” (Associated Press 2012).
