Copenhagen attack: ISIS claims responsibility for shooting that injured two police officers

Isis has claimed responsibility for a shooting attack that injured two police officers and a bystander in Copenhagen.

The officers were assaulted while on patrol in the Danish capital’s district of Christiania, which is known for its drugs trade, on Wednesday.

In a statement released through its online propaganda agency, Isis described the attacker as a “soldier of the Islamic State”, saying he was responding to jihadists’ calls for followers to carry out atrocities in the West.
