Denmark: Three Muslim Men Arrested For Planning Terror Attack, Illegal Possession of Automatic Weapons
Translated by Nicolai Sennels, via Jihad Watch – “The Police Intelligence Service (PET) has arrested three people on Friday April 27th in connection with a investigation of terrorism. The arrests occurred at two addresses in Copenhagen, and searches in connection with the arrests are being conducted at several locations in the Copenhagen area.
The Police Intelligence Service (PET) writes in a statement:
‘Those arrested have been provisionally charged with illegal possession of automatic weapons and ammunition, but they are also suspected of having been in the process of preparing a terrorist act,’ it said.
The arrested are a local 22-year-old Jordanian national, a resident 23-year-old Turkish national and a 21-year-old Danish citizen residing in Egypt. They will be presented in the Copenhagen City Court within the next 24 hours. PET does not wish to disclose further details in the matter, nor whether the men will be presented in court Friday or Saturday.
In another case, four men are currently charged with an attempt of terrorism against Jyllands-Posten / Politiken Hus (famous for having published the renowned Mohammed drawing by Kurt Westergaard).
The four deny that they had planned a terror attack shortly before the New Year in 2010 against JP / Politiken Hus in Copenhagen. They were all arrested on December 29th 2010, and are presently in the Court of Glostrup.” Read more (Danish).
