Memorial service for victims of shootings tonight

Prime minister to attend

Following on from the events of this weekend, there will be a memorial service held this evening for the victims and those injured in the Copenhagen shootings.

The memorial will take place at Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads, a square accessible from Østerbrogade and just around the corner from the scene of the first shootings, from 8pm onwards.

PM to attend
The service program will include a number of guest speakers, including the prime minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, and the French ambassador, François Zimeray, who survived the first attack.

There will also be a number of musical performances throughout the evening.

The memorial is being organised on behalf of all the political parties represented at Copenhagen Municipality, who are standing together across political boundaries to protect freedom of expression, democracy and free speech.
