Prophet cartoon paper 'bomb target'

A man hurt in an explosion at a Copenhagen hotel was preparing a letter bomb, police have said.

Officers in Denmark claimed that the bomb was likely to have been intended for a Danish newspaper which published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad.

Police spokesman Svend Foldager said the device went off as the man was trying to assemble it in a hotel bathroom on September 10.

Investigators believe the suspect is a Chechen-born boxer living in Belgium, but have not positively confirmed his identity.
