2 Chicagoans allegedly plotted to kill Westergaard

From an AP story comes news that two men from Chicago were arrested for allegedly plotting attacks on overseas targets including Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard.

Federal prosecutors have charged 49-year-old David Coleman Headley and 48-year-old Tahawwur Hussain Rana. Prosecutors contend Headley told FBI agents that the initial plan called for an attack against the newspaper building in Copenhagen. But an FBI affidavit says Headley later proposed just killing the paper’s cartoonist and former cultural editor.
