Norway terror suspect rejects al Qaeda link
Mikael Davud, a Chinese Muslim, said he was planning a solo raid against the Chinese Embassy in Oslo.
Oslo: The accused ringleader of a terror plot in Norway has rejected charges that he conspired with al Qaeda to attack a Danish newspaper, saying he was planning a solo raid against the Chinese Embassy in Oslo.
Mikael Davud, a Chinese Muslim, told the Oslo district court on Thursday his two alleged accomplices helped him acquire bomb-making ingredients but didn't know he was planning an attack.
The trio was arrested in July 2010 in a plot that investigators have linked to the same al Qaeda planners behind thwarted attacks against the New York subway and a British shopping mall in 2009.
Prosecutors say the Norwegian cell first wanted to attack a Danish newspaper that caricatured the Prophet Muhammad, and then changed plans to focus on murdering one of the cartoonists instead.
