A 22-year-old man has been arrested. He probably acted alone. The police do not rule out an act of terrorism. It is not yet clear how many people were killed and injured.
“Tonight we heard the shocking news about the serious incidents in Copenhagen earlier today,” begins the statement drawn up on behalf of Queen Margrethe and the Crown Prince couple Frederik and Mary. “We don’t know everything about this tragedy yet, but it is already clear that several people have lost their lives and more people have been injured.”
The royal family calls for “unity and care” in the country. And she said: “We would like to thank the police, emergency services and health authorities for their prompt and effective response over the past few hours.”
