Denmark: hotel bomber found guilty of terror

A Chechen-born man who set off an explosion in a Copenhagen hotel has been convicted of attempted terrorism.
The Copenhagen City Court says prosecutors have proved that Lors Doukayev, a one-legged amateur boxer, was trying to assemble a bomb when it went off in hotel bathroom in September.
Doukayev, a 25-year-old citizen and resident of Belgium, received cuts to his face in the explosion. No one else was injured.
Investigators said Doukayev, who pleaded innocent, was preparing a letter bomb for a Danish newspaper that printed caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.
