WASHINGTON -- Federal prosecutors say a Chicago man accused of plotting a terror attack on a Danish newspaper also helped scope out targets in the Indian city of Mumbai before they were attacked.
Tahawwur Hussain Rana and David Coleman Headley were charged in October with plotting an attack on the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten out of revenge for a dozen cartoons printed in 2005 depicting the Prophet Muhammad.

Authorities have unsealed new charges saying Headley conspired to bomb public places in India. They also say he is cooperating with investigators in both the Danish and Indian plots since his arrest.
Officials also say a retired major in the Pakistani military, Abdur Rehman Hashim Syed, took part in the plot to attack the Danish newspaper.
