Chicago – two arrested for Jyllands-Posten terror plot

Two men have been arrested (Googlish version) in Chicago in connection with a plot to attack offices of the Danish newspaper which originally published the Motoons.

David Coleman Headley (49), originally Daood Gilani, a US citizen and Tahawwur Hussain Rana (48), a Pakistani Canadian, allegedly liaised with Pakistani terror groups to plan an attack on the Jyllands-Posten.

According to the Justice Department Press Release, Headley conducted surveillance in Denmark during two separate trips arranged by Rana and subsequently passed on the information to terrorist groups in Pakistan.

From the press release:

In October 2008, Headley allegedly posted a message to the “abdalians” internet discussion group stating that “I feel disposed towards violence for the offending parties,” referring to the Danish cartoonists and others who he identified “as making fun of Islam.”
