Danish Imams Will Not Be Prosecuted

Danish imams that traveled to the Middle East in 2005 to seek support against cartoons of the Prophet Muhammed published by Denmark's newspaper Jyllands-Posten, playing a key role in the political fever that would finally break across Europe in the form of riots, deaths, threats and economic boycotts in early 2006, will not face prosecution, wire reports say earlier today.

Danish Prosecutor Birgitte Vestberg told the press she found no evidence that the imams violadte the penal code or courted "hostilities against Denmark" in their travels.
