In the aftermath of terrorist attacks in Copenhagen, Danish officials are searching for answers. The Danish premier has emphasized that the motive remains unknown, despite its parallels to the Charlie Hebdo killings.
On Sunday, investigators and officials in Denmark were liaising with their counterparts in Britain, France, Germany and Sweden, as well as with Europol, hours after deadly shootings in Copenhagen left two people dead.
Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt (pictured right) urged citizens to maintain a balanced perspective on what had happened before the police’s findings were released.
“We don’t know the motive for the attacks but we know that there are forces that want to harm Denmark, that want to crush our freedom of expression, our belief in liberty,” Prime Minister Thorning-Schmidt said.
