Norway arrests preacher who praised Charlie Hebdo killers

A radical Islamic preacher has been arrested in Norway after praising last month’s deadly attack on the Charlie Hebdo satirical weekly in Paris, police said on Friday.

The Iraqi Kurd preacher known as Mullah Krekar, who was only freed from prison late last month, was arrested last night on accusations of inciting crime, police said. “I am obviously happy with what happened in Paris,” the 58-year-old said in the interview with Norwegian channel NRK.

Krekar also responded “yes” when asked if he believed those who carried out the attack were heroes.
When a cartoonist “tramples on our dignity, our principles and our faith, he must die,” he said.
