'Muhammad cartoon plotters' charged in Denmark court

Three men have been charged in a Danish court with attempting to carry out an act of terrorism.

They were arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of plotting to attack the offices of a newspaper which printed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

A fourth man has been released while a fifth, arrested in Sweden, is still being held in Stockholm.
