COPENHAGEN, Denmark (WKOW) -- Police in Denmark say a man injured in an explosion at a Copenhagen hotel was preparing a letter bomb that may have been intended for a Danish newspaper that published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

The bomb went off as the man was trying to build it in a hotel bathroom last week, according to a police spokesman.

Investigators believe the suspect is a one-legged Chechen-born boxer living in Belgium, but they have not confirmed his identity.
