Cartoonist threatened in Denmark, protests expected over Dutch filmmaker's portrayal of Islam

CNN is reporting that two Tunisian immigrants and a Dane are accused of plotting to kill cartoonist Kurt Westergaard, who's cartoons depicting Muslim prophet Muhammed incited riots and complaints around the world two years ago. In a similar concern, Netherlands Radio is reporting that a film on Islam from conservative leader Geert Wilders has Dutch officials fearing repercussions similar to the ones for Westergaard's work.

The CNN article quotes a network source as saying that many Europeans are feeling wary about the influence of Islam in their countries.
