Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein swore allegiance to ISIS on Facebook moments before Copenhagen attacks

The jihadi who murdered two civilians in Denmark swore allegiance to Islamic State just nine minutes before his first attack.

Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein declared his devotion to the terror group on his Facebook page and then gunned down a film director at a free speech debate in Copenhagen.

The 22-year-old fanatic later killed a volunteer security guard at a synagogue before police shot him dead.

Last night it emerged that Danish intelligence service PET was warned that El-Hussein had become radicalised while in prison.

A senior member of his former gang, called the Brothas, said El-Hussein had been released two weeks ago…


His former gang says he might have been ‘radicalized’ in prison. Not that it takes much to ‘radicalize’ and an already criminal young Muslim.
