DHAKA: A Danish court has said it will deliver a verdict on Monday on four men accused of planning a ‘Mumbai-style’ attack on a Danish newspaper whose publication of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in 2005 prompted a Muslim outcry.
The men, three Swedes and a Tunisian, have pleaded not guilty, denying allegations they had planned to kill many people at the Copenhagen offices of the Jyllands-Posten newspaper.
One of the accused has pleaded guilty to illegally possessing weapons, a charge the others have denied.
A verdict had not been expected until June 15, but the proceedings have gone more quickly than planned, report agencies.
