Danish cartoonist, Kurt Westergaard's Muslim attacker sentenced to 9-years' prison, followed by deportation

A Danish court on Friday sentenced a Muslim immigrant to Denmark to nine years in prison followed by expulsion for trying to kill a cartoonist whose 2005 drawing of the prophet Mohammed provoked Muslim outrage around the world.
The court in the city of Aarhus sentenced Muhudiin Mohamed Geele to be expelled from Denmark and banned from the country for life after serving his sentence, a police official said.

Geele, 29, broke into the home of cartoonist Kurt Westergaard with an axe and a sharp knife on New Year's Day last year. He was convicted on Thursday of an attempted act of terrorism and attempted manslaughter.

The court said in a statement the attack was an attempt to frighten the population and destabilise society and thus constituted an act of terror.  (Courtesy Sdamatt2)
