Lars Vilks

“I’m not shaking with fear, exactly,” [Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks] told Swedish news agency TT, adding: “I have prepared in different ways and I have an axe here in case someone should manage to get in through the window.”

“Vilks has in the past dismissed the threats against him as “scare tactics” and, supported by the Swedish media, has insisted on the importance of publishing such material in defence of Sweden’s freedom of expression.”
