Police in Denmark say a man injured in an explosion at a Copenhagen hotel was preparing a letter bomb, likely intended for a Danish newspaper that published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

Police spokesman Svend Foldager says the device went off as the man was trying to assemble it in a hotel bathroom on Sept 10. Investigators believe the suspect is a Chechen-born boxer living in Belgium, but have not positively confirmed his identity.
