Four Guilty in Danish Terror Plot

Four men were found guilty of plotting a terrorist attack after a Danish paper published cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad in 2005. Each faces up to 16 years in prison. The men were apprehended by police just hours before their planned attack, according to law-enforcement officials, and were found in possession of a machine gun, a pistol, and a stock of ammunition. They planned their attack at a public sporting event out of anger that the Danish paper Jyllands-Posten had published 12 cartoons depicting the Muslim prophet, a decision that drew outrage from Muslims at the time.
