Copenhagen Police have increased patrols at  in Copenhagen Airports and other key points in the city.

The increase in security comes in the wake of attacks at the Brussels airport and a metro station in that city that have caused several deaths and multiple injuries.

“We will be more visible,” said Copenhagen police in a statement. “We will be watching out for suspicious behaviour and abandoned objects at the airport and at other transportation hubs throughout the city.”


High alert
While declining to quote the specific number of officers, Copenhagen police said that they are on “high alert”.

Danish national intelligence agency PET said that they are following the situation in Belgium very closely.
