Somali Shot Trying to Attack Danish Cartoonist

From CNN:
A Somali man was shot as he allegedly tried to enter the home of Danish political cartoonist Kurt Westergaard -- known for his controversial depictions of the Muslim prophet Mohammad -- on Saturday, police said.

The 27-year-old man, who was not identified, wielded an ax and a knife and cracked a window at Westergaard's home in Aarhus, said police spokesman Morten Jensen. A home alarm alerted police to the scene at 10 p.m., and they were attacked by the man, he said.
While the Somali has not been identified as a Muslim, I think it's safe to assume he isn't from a militant Quaker sect. Besides, Quakers aren't stupid enough to bring an axe to a gunfight.
