Danish police foil terror plot to attack newspaper

The Danish authorities say they have managed to stop an imminent terrorist attack in the capital, Copenhagen.

The intended target was the newspaper Jyllands-Posten, which outraged some Muslims by printing caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed five years ago.

The authorities say they've arrested five men who planned to shoot as many people as possible in a building housing the paper.

Mike Wooldridge reports.
