Denmark: Palestinian Man Attacked Swedish Minister, Cop

Danish authorities believe that a Palestinian man  attempted to kill a police officer and also attacked a Swedish minister earlier this year.

Denmark’s PET intelligence agency says that the suspect had previously threatened a police officer, and that he is believed to have sympathies for jihadists in Syria. He was detained after using a fire extinguisher on Justice Minister Morgan Johansson of Sweden, but was released after Johanson proved to be unharmed. Last week he stabbed a police officer, and he has since been ordered to remain in custody for three weeks.

Both attacks occurred in asylum centers.
