Denmark's intelligence service said it thwarted a bomb plot when anti-terror squads rounded up eight Islamic militants with alleged links to senior al-Qaida terrorists. The pre-dawn raids sent jitters through a country that stirred Muslim anger and deadly protests last year after a newspaper printed 12 cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad. "This could indicate that (al-Qaida) now is able to pick up the phone and order a terror act in Denmark," said Hans Joergen Bonnichsen, who retired as operative head of the PET intelligence service in 2006, on Tuesday. However, Jakob Scharf, head of the PET, said the foiled terror plot was not connected to either the uproar over the prophet cartoons or Denmark's involvement in the US-led coalition in Iraq.
