The justice minister Søren Pind has announced that four individuals have been charged with taking part in the terror attacks in Copenhagen last year.

The four men have been charged with terrorism in connection with the attack on Copenhagen’s Great Synagogue last year where security guard Dan Uzan was killed by the main perpetrator, Omar El-Hussein.

Protecting security
“As justice minister, it is one of my most important tasks to protect the security and safety of the Danes,” said Pind.


“The charges are an important step in terms of bringing those people who are partly responsible for the terror attacks in Copenhagen to justice.”
