Pak court acquits Danish embassy bombing suspects

A Pakistani court acquits three men because of “insufficient evidence”.

Islamabad: A Pakistani court has reportedly acquitted three men accused of involvement in the bombing of the Danish embassy in Islamabad because of “insufficient evidence”.

According to the BBC, the trio was arrested several months after the suicide car bomb attack that killed six people, including a Dane, in June 2008.

Prosecutor Mohammad Tayyab said the judge had ruled there was insufficient evidence against the men and added that prosecutors could challenge this in the high court.

"We believe our case is very strong and the high court will analyse our evidence again and decide the case in our favour," Tayyab added.

Earlier, the al Qaeda network claimed responsibility for the attack, which came amid anger in the Muslim world over cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad printed in Danish newspapers.
