COPENHAGEN, February 14. /TASS/. An attack on the controversial artist Lars Vilks has been attempted in a cafй in the Danish capital where a debate on art, blasphemy and freedom of speech was underway, the Copenhagen police said on Saturday.
In 2007 Vilks published drawings featuring Prophet Mohammad as a fight dog.
After that, he received death threats and underwent several attempts on his life. In Copenhagen Vilks was under police protection and remained unhurt in the attack.
TV2 television channel said that three police officers were wounded and a 40-year-old participant of the debate was killed in an armed attack on the Krudttonden cafй, the venue of jazz concerts.
France’s ambassador to Denmark who was attending the event was unharmed, too.
Two masked assailants fired as many as 40 shots from automatic arms and fled in a black Volkswagen, they later abandoned in one of the city’s districts, eyewitnesses said.
Police have launched a manhunt cordoning off all the roads out of Copenhagen.
