New York, February 14, 2008—CPJ is concerned by reports that police in Denmark have uncovered a plot to kill the author of a cartoon depicting the Prophet Muhammad—one of 12 drawings that sparked a global controversy two years ago.

Danish security services arrested a Danish citizen of Moroccan origin and two Tunisians on Tuesday. At least 17 Danish dailies, including the leading national dailies Politiken and Ekstra Bladet, reprinted Westergaard’s cartoon in solidarity after learning of the murder plot against him, according to Agence France-Presse.
