Norway court convicts two in bomb plot

2012-01-30 16:40

Oslo - A Norwegian of Chinese Muslim origin with alleged links to al-Qaeda was convicted on Monday of plotting to blow up a Danish newspaper that had printed cartoons of Islam's Prophet Mohammad, and was sentenced to seven years in prison.

Mikael Davud, who was accused of leading a bomb plot, had admitted he intended some day to attack Chinese interests like the Chinese embassy in Oslo but he was charged only with plotting to bomb the Danish newspaper.

Prosecutors had earlier recommended an 11-year prison sentence for Davud.

A co-defendant, Iraqi-Kurd Shawan Sadek Saeed Bujak, was also convicted and sentenced to three and a half years in prison while a third defendant, David Jakobsen, an Uzbek with Norwegian residency, was convicted on a lesser charge and sentenced to 4 months, which he has already served.

It was Norway's first terrorism case with alleged international links. Under Norwegian law a charge of planning to commit a terrorist attack requires proof of a conspiracy between two or more people.

      @Ivan.coetzee2 - You again ducked the question. You claimed that Norway is a Christian country. Lets start your education with Scandinavian countries (that for your information include Norway). These are the most unchristian secular countries in Europe where Christians are in fact a minority of the population. "The Scandinavian countries as basically secular with recent studies showing that only 1/3 of the population believe in god(s) at all. Other traits include a broad disinterest in religious topics at all. Many non-Scandinavian characterizations indicate the ares are "christian" without specification". http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_religion_do_most_Scandinavian_countries_practice#ixzz1ky9zyozv According to the most recent Eurobarometer Poll 2005,[4] 32% of Norwegian citizens responded that "they believe there is a God" 47% answered that "they believe there is some sort of spirit or life force". 17% answered that "they do not believe there is any sort of spirit, God, or life force". 4% answered that they "do not know". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_Norway Christian country, not.
