Your Danish Cartoons Hangover Update

There's really only one story today, but it's an important one: the wires are full of previews for tomorrow's trial commencement in Denmark of four men accused of plotting terrorist action against the Jyllands-Posten newspaper offices because of their publishing the Danish Muhammed caricatures. The men accused were all residents of Sweden at the time of their planned attack: Mounir Ben Mohamed Dhahri, a Tunisian citizen; Munir Awad, a Swedish citizen originally from Lebanon; Omar Abdalla Aboelazm, a Swedish citizen with an Egyptian father, and Sahbi Ben Mohamed Zalouti, a Swedish citizen originally from Tunisia. The trial is expected to wrap up around mid-June, and it looks like this is a plot that famed state's witness and terrorism plotter David Coleman Headley apparently helped plan.
