Kurt Westergaard is a Dane who drew this cartoon (one of the famous twelve cartoons):
Now, Der Spiegel reports:
[Westergaard] was booted from his police-protected hotel room on Feb. 15 for being "too much of a security risk." ... Westergaard was forced to leave his actual residence in November after the Danish security and intelligence agency, PET, informed him of a "concrete" plan to murder him, according to the paper that originally published the cartoons, Jyllands-Posten. Westergaard and his wife have been living under police protection since.
PET had been gathering information about the plot for several months, leading to a Feb. 12 raid carried out in the western Danish city of Aarhus. Five suspects — "people with a Muslim background," with both Danish and foreign citizenship — were taken into custody. The Associated Press quoted PET as stating that the raids were intended "to prevent a terror-related murder ... [and to do so] at an early phase to stop the planning."
The article goes on to quote a Danish Muslim leader who is speaking out against any violence, and I'm glad to hear that. Unfortunately for Westergaard, that might not be enough.
