Experts: The threat from al Qaeda against Denmark is decreasing

EFD Senior Policy Advisor Lorenzo Vidino contributes to the report saying that unlike in previous years, Denmark is no longer considered a prime terrorist target for the group. Due to the controversy sparked by cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed in 2006, published in the Danish publication Jyllands-Postens, the country was frequently cited as a target for terror operations.
