2 men charged, accused of targeting Danish paper

Prosecutors in Chicago have charged two men in connection with the planning of terrorist acts against overseas targets, including a Danish newspaper that published cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammed.
Those 2005 cartoons caused outrage across the Muslim world and led to protests and boycotts.
Prosecutors have charged David Coleman Headley and Tahawwur Hussain Rana in separate complaints filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Chicago.
Headley is charged with conspiracy to commit terrorist acts involving murder and maiming outside the United States. He and Rana are both charged with conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorism conspiracy.
Prosecutors contend Headley traveled to Denmark to identify potential targets for a terrorist attack and that Rana helped arrange Headley's travel.
