Terror in Copenhagen

There have been multiple attacks today in Copenhagen, and we have reason to believe they have been carried out by terrorists.

From Business Insider:

Earlier on Saturday, a civilian was killed and three police wounded when a masked gunman shot at the windows of the Krudttoenden cafe in a Copenhagen.

The venue was holding a free speech event attended by Swedish artist Lars Vilks, who stirred controversy in 2007 with his drawings depicting the Prophet Mohammad as a dog.

But that is not all. Shortly after, a synagogue was attacked.

A gunman opened fire at a Copenhagen synagogue hours after a shooting at a free-speech event in the city on Saturday.

At the synagogue, one person was shot in the head and later died while two police officers were shot in the arms and legs, the Associated Press reports.

The suspect fled the scene on foot.

It is too early to know whether the attacks are related, but our gut feeling tells us they probably are.

“We feel certain now that it was a politically motivated attack, and thereby it was a terrorist attack,” Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt told journalists close to the site of the attack.
