Danish ‘martyr’ exhibit reported to police

In an exhibit partly inspired by Tehran’s Martyrs’ Museum, a Danish group of artists plans to include brothers Ibrahim and Khalid El-Bakraoui, who detonated bombs in the deadly Brussels attacks on March 22nd, and Foued Mohamed-Aggad, who blew himself up at Paris music venue Bataclan on November 14th.

The installation will have the look of a museum, using images of the “martyrs”, replicas of their belongings and plaques to explain who they are.
