Assassination Attempt on Mohammed Cartoonist Lars VilksPosted: September 5, 2013
Vilks had just given an interview to the derStandard.at journalist Teresa Eder in Rönnquist & Rönnquist gallery in Malmö when an unknown man entered the gallery. He said he wanted to show Vilks some artworks that were inside a red suitcase. Vilks’ bodyguards refused the man entry and asked him to display the contents of his suitcase in front of the gallery. When they discovered a gun inside, they subdued the man. Five minutes later the police were also on the scene.
According to the Swedish newspaper “Aftonbladet”, it is said to have been only a dummy that the man wanted to present as an “artwork”. The police had previously blocked off the surrounding streets to examine the contents of the case. A bomb disposal team was also requested.
Vilks was brought to safety after the attempted attack. In his first reactions, he showed himself to be relaxed: “I have already experienced so much, I’m not impressed by something like this.”
