Two young men of Pakistani and Afghan origin have been found guilty of preparing a terrorist attack and were only stopped after police arrested them and searched their apartment, according to the Glostrup Court.
Magistrates later sentenced Hammad Khürshid, 22, to 12 years in prison while his comrade Abdolghani Tohki was sentenced to seven years in jail. Khürshid is a Dane of Pakistani descent, while Tohki is of Afghan descent. Tohki is to be extradited after serving his sentence and will be barred from Denmark for life.
In its summing up of the case earlier in the day, the court emphasised that the two men had explosives manuals and martyr videos and that one of the accused, HK, had been to an al-Qaeda training camp.
