Hedegaard lashes out following failed assassination attempt

Police are looking for a Danish-speaking man with "Middle Eastern traits" who attempted to assassinate Danish free speech advocate and Islam critic Lars Hedegaard yesterday.

Lars Hedegaard, president of the Danish Free Press Society and a critic of Islam, survived an assassination attempt outside his home. The assailant fired and missed, then fled when his gun jammed. Shortly thereafter, two men in ski masks were seen jumping into the hippopotamus enclosure at the nearby Copenhagen Zoo. In 2011 Hedegaard was cleared of a racism charge for anti-Muslim comments made at a party.
