Danes say hotel blast could be terror attack

Police in Denmark said a small explosion at a Copenhagen hotel could be terror related.

Copenhagen police operations chief Joern Aabye said investigators “could not rule out” that an act of terrorism had been planned in Friday’s explosion.

There were no injuries in the blast, which caused some minor damage to a hotel bathroom.

Officers arrested a man in a park in central Copenhagen after he was seen running away from the hotel after the blast. They used a remote-controlled robot to detach a pack from his waist for fear it could contain explosives.

Mr Aabye said today that police were investigating the incident.
