Norway jails two for Danish newspaper terror plot

A Norwegian court has convicted two men of planning to attack Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten after it printed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, the BBC said. The convictions were the first under Norway’s anti-terrorism legislation. Mikael Davud, a Norwegian from China’s ethnic Uighur minority who had links to al-Qaeda, was jailed for seven years. An Iraqi Kurd, Shawan Sadek Saeed Bujak, was given three-and-a-half years. Another man, David Jakobsen, was cleared of terror charges.
