COPENHAGEN, Denmark — There are "new indications" that Islamist terror groups are seeking to carry out attacks in Denmark, the country's intelligence service said Tuesday.

"Statements from al-Qaida members and related groups underline the militant Islamist terror groups' continued strategic focus on Denmark," the Danish Security and Intelligence Service said in its annual assessment of the terror threat.

The agency, known by it's Danish acronym PET, said the Scandinavian nation remains a "high-priority terrorist target" because of newspaper cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that sparked riots in the Muslim world in 2006. Individuals and locations linked to the cartoon case are specifically at risk, PET said.
