Boxer pleads innocent in Danish terror trial

Boxer pleads innocent in Danish terror trial

A Chechen-born boxer accused of preparing a letter bomb for a Danish newspaper that printed caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad has pleaded innocent to terrorism at the start of his trial in Copenhagen.
Lors Doukayev, a resident of Belgium, pleaded guilty to another charge of illegal weapons possession for bringing a handgun and an explosive substance to Denmark.
Doukayev was arrested in September after a small explosion in a hotel bathroom in Copenhagen. Investigators believe he was trying to assemble a letter bomb when it went off by accident.
They say his likely target was the Jyllands-Posten newspaper, which angered Muslims by printing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
