Security at possible terrorist targets stepped up
Police nationwide are on increased alert for possible terrorist attacks after yesterday’s arrest of a man in conjunction with a minor explosion in central Copenhagen.
The move, which includes additional security at Copenhagen Airport as well as possible targets, comes after investigators initially downplayed terrorism as a possible motive.
Evidence now indicates that the explosion was a failed terrorist attack, and intelligence service PET could not rule out that man taken into custody as a suspect may have had accomplices.
But Jakob Scharf, the director of PET, cautioned during a press conference today that it was ‘too early to say whether there was a connection with terrorism or other form of serious crime’.
The police have also indicated that a pistol was found at the scene of the explosion.
The suspect has refused to talk to police, but has been identified as a foreign citizen. He remains in hospital after receiving light injuries when the bomb exploded in the bathroom of a hotel near Copenhagen’s Nørreport Station, the nation’s busiest railway hub.
