That's sad. Was anyone hurt? Has anyone claimed responsibility?

A. It could be Al Qaeda or the Taliban.

B. It could be really angry locals

C. It could be a new terrorist group

I just checked google news, it said 9 people were killed.

The Danish embassy represents Denmark NOT the Netherlands! Maybe somebody still has a grunch against Denmark b/c of those *insulting* prints, a year or so ago...

It is said to have been a vengeance attack for the prints that were re-printed again in Danish newspapers in February.

What I think is unfair is that some people can't make the distinction between Danes and Swedes/Norweigans. After the first publication, there were attacks on not just Danish targets, but also on Swedish and Norweigan. What did we do?

I'm all for free speech, but offending a religion is a huge no-no for me and should be for everyone.

It's no more strange than Arabs being lumped together.
