terror plot

Terror suspect handed over to Denmark

The 37-year-old man, who was arrested in Stockholm in March accused of planning a terrorist attack in Denmark, has been extradited.

Three other men were arrested in Denmark also accused of planning the attack. The alleged target was the offices of Jyllandsposten, the Danish newspaper which several years ago published controversial cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad.

A district court in Copenhagen will on Friday decide whether or not the man should remain in custody pending further investigation. The Swedish investigation into the plot has been handed over to Danish authorities.
