“Westergaard’s cartoon, which showed Muhammad wearing a turban shaped as a bomb with a lit fuse, was one of the most controversial.
“Westergaard and his 66-year-old wife Gitte had been living under police protection because of the murder plans, Jyllands-Posten reported. It said those arrested included both Danish and foreign citizens.
“‘Of course I fear for my life when the police intelligence service say that some people have concrete plans to kill me. But I have turned fear into anger and resentment,’ Westergaard said in a statement published on Jyllands-Posten‘s website.”
