Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks, known for his blasphemous depiction of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, dies in a car accident along with police officers who had been assigned to protect him.
Axar.az reports that Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks, who lived under police protection after his 2007 blasphemous depiction of the Prophet Muhammad prompted death threats, has died in a car accident.
The 75-year-old and two police officers were killed in a collision with an oncoming truck on Sunday, Swedish police confirmed.
"This is being investigated like any other road accident. Because two policemen were involved, an investigation has been assigned to a special section of the prosecutor's office," said a police spokesperson, adding that there was no suspicion of foul play.
