Police removed a homemade bomb under a vehicle in a residential area in Valby today.

Police told the media that they dismantled and removed an explosive device from under a car at a home on Lindebugten in the Copenhagen suburb of Valby. A handful of houses in the area were evacuated when the family in the home in question discovered the homemade device, which consisted of a gasoline canister, a battery and some cables.

It is unclear how likely the homemade bomb was to explode or how dangerous it could have been, but police say that the intent was to kill and that they are treating the case as an attempted murder.

According to police, the family in the home reported having no enemies that might wish to harm them but did mention a dispute with a labourer.
