A Danish Islamic group said its spokesman will be removed from his post after he was secretly filmed making an apparent call for a bomb attack against a moderate Muslim lawmaker.
The spokesman, Ahmad Akkari, was shown on French television Thursday suggesting a bomb attack against the lawmaker, Naser Khader. Akkari later said it was a joke.
The hidden camera interview was recorded in February as raging protests swept the Muslim world over the Prophet Muhammad cartoons first published in a Danish newspaper.

"Akkari can no longer be our spokesman after these statements," Said said.
