A man who led protests against the publication of cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad on Wednesday denied calling for the murder of Danish and US citizens. Prosecutors have told the trial of Umran Javed, 27, that he attempted to rally the crowd at the Feb. 3 demonstration to launch attacks against the United States and Denmark with the words, "Bomb, bomb, Denmark, bomb, bomb USA." Javed, from Birmingham, central England, acknowledged the words but denied charges of soliciting murder and stirring up racial hatred. He told London's Old Bailey court on Wednesday: "I regret saying these things. I understand the implications they have but they were just slogans, sound bites. I did not want to see Denmark and the USA being bombed."
