Kurt Westergaard news round up


Kurt Westergaard is in hiding again. That’s according to NPR who interviewed after the New Year’s Day attack on his home by a axe-wielding man. Listen to the full interview on NPR.

An AP story reports that prosecutors have filed a preliminary charge of terrorism against the axe-wielding man for his murder attempt on Kurt’s life.

In a show of solidarity, The Norweigan newspaper Aftenposten published the infamous Prophet Mohammed cartoons last Friday. Aftenposten’s editor Hilde Haugsgjerd said it seemed “natural and justified to republish the artistic and journalistic body of work that is likely the cause of this violence”.
