"Jihad Jane" plead guilty to terrorist and murder plans to kill  Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks
Tuesday, 01 February 2011
An American woman, Colleen LaRose, who called herself "Jihad Jane", has pleaded guilty to the murder plans against Swedish Mohamed cartoonist Lars Vilks.

She pleaded guilty in Pennsylvania to involvement in an overseas terrorism plot - plans to kill in a foreign country, telling lies to the police and identity theft. Colleen LaRose conspired with Islamists and pledged to murder in the name of a Muslim holy war, prosecutors say.
According t the BBC, the 46-year-old was indicted as part of an investigation into an alleged plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist who drew pictures of the Prophet Muhammad.

"Today's guilty plea, by a woman from suburban America who plotted with others to commit murder overseas and to provide material support to terrorists, underscores the evolving nature of the threat we face," said David Kris, assistant attorney general for national security, reports the BBC

Already on Saturday, her lawyer said that she would plead guilty.
Larose was prosecuted in 2009 for supporting foreign terrorists and murderous plans against Vilks.
