Oslo: A man in custody in Norway on
suspicion of plotting bombings with two accomplices, said
today the planned attack was aimed at Chinese interests and
not a Danish newspaper, his lawyer told the NTB news agency.

Mikael Davud, a 39-year-old ethnic Uighur from
China who is a Norwegian citizen, "has confessed under
interrogation to plans to hit Chinese interests," his lawyer
Arild Humlen told NTB.

"He has used the two other suspects as errand boys
for the plans, and they knew nothing of his motives," he

Davud`s confession runs counter to the accounts of
his accomplice Shawan Sadek Saeed Bujak, who said the three
men had planned to attack the Danish newspaper
Jyllands-Posten, renowned for having published caricatures of
the Prophet Mohammed in September 2005.
