Danish intelligence: Planned attacks not imminent

Danish intelligence officials say they worked closely with the FBI to thwart an alleged terrorist plot by two Chicago men against a Danish newspaper.
The Danish Security and Intelligence Service, or PET, said Tuesday that attacks against the newspaper were not imminent.
Prosecutors say 49-year-old David Coleman Headley and 48-year-old Tahawwur Hussain Rana planned to attack the Danish newspaper that sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world by publishing cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed.
The men were charged in separate complaints filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Chicago. Prosecutors say Headley traveled to Denmark to identify potential targets for a terrorist attack and that Rana helped arrange Headley's travel.
