Radicalized Danish teen gets eight years for planned school bombings

Copenhagen - A teenage Danish convert to the Islamic faith faces eight years in prison because she planned to bomb a pair of schools, a high court in Copenhagen ruled Monday.

Medical professionals had advised the court that the girl was so dangerous that she should be incarcerated for the foreseeable future. However, the court opted for a time-limited sentence.
The court said that the girl had made contact with representatives of the Islamic State militant group from her room in the Danish city of Kundby when she was 15. From then on, it was not long until she was radicalized.
Investigators found various chemicals and descriptions for building explosives when they searched her room. The girl had planned to target her own school as well as a Jewish school in Copenhagen. She was arrested in January 2016.
During her initial detention, she brutally attacked a youth warden, stabbing him repeatedly with a shard of a smashed mirror.
