DUBLIN  — Police in Ireland on Tuesday arrested seven people over an alleged plot to kill Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks, who depicted the Prophet Muhammad with the body of a dog.

Irish police said four men and three women were detained in raids across the south of the country.

The force says the arrests were part of an investigation into a "conspiracy to murder an individual in another jurisdiction."
