Someone tried to kill a 32-year-old man at Nørrebro's Café Runddelen early yesterday morning. The man, who police described as being "a Danish man of Syrian background", is in a critical condition at Rigshospitalet's Trauma Centre.

"The man was stabbed 27 times," the Copenhagen Police wrote in a statement.

The police still do not know the motive behind the attack, which took place around 4am yesterday morning while the bar was crammed with guests.

Preliminary interviews have led police to suspect that there is more than one assailant.

The victim was first discovered seriously wounded and bleeding at the door of the bar.
