Mohammed Cartoonist Lars Vilks Attacked In Uppsala (Updated)

NT TV. It's in Swedish. Googlish translate:

The controversial artist Lars Vilks överfölls at a lecture in Uppsala on Tuesday afternoon.

More people pounced on him and the more saturated kind to him.
- It was quiet at first but then threw himself a man sitting in the front row of Vilks and suddenly he had two more people about it. All dimensions are kind to him, "says Tor Jonsson, UNT's photography on site.
- The man sat in the front row and suddenly came rushing towards me. He gave me a "Danish," and I went into the wall and lost his glasses, "says Vilks said.

After the attack Vilks was in safety.
- I'm not injured, but a bit bruised, "he said.

Two people were arrested in attack

Update: Here is a site in English. Saw the link at FB Everybody Draw Mohammed Day. FB user Maryam Muslimah had this to say about the attack:

Nasty Muslimah eh?

Update II: Looks like Maryam Muslimah went into hiding....

Update III YouTube video added. Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar heard repeatedly from these ROP folks.
