Denmark: Muslim knifeman made earlier attack in Sweden

The 25-year-old Palestinian who stabbed a police officer at the Sandholm asylum centre this week had previously attacked a Swedish minister, the Danish Security and Intelligence Service said on Wednesday.

The Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET) said in a press release that they were familiar with the 25-year-old stateless Palestinian accused of stabbing and seriously wounding a police officer on Tuesday.

PET said that it had been warned about the man’s mental health and potential loyalty to the terror group Isis, alternately known as ISIL, Daesh or the Islamic State.
