Death threat, blasphemous cartoon causes riots in Copenhagen

    The caricature was reprinted this week after Danish police uncovered a plot to kill the cartoonist.

    Three people were arrested for planning the murder, including two Tunisians who have lived in Denmark for more than seven years and whom Denmark has decided to expel without a trial.

    That decision has been heavily criticised by human rights associations and some politicians and legal experts in Denmark.

    The AFP reported that the riots have been taking place in a predominantly immigrant area of Danish capital.
