Suspects arrested for attack on Turkish Embassy in Copenhagen

All four people suspected of attacking the Turkish Embassy in Copenhagen with firebombs on March 19 have been arrested, Danish media reported on March 26. 

Two suspects were detained on March 24 and were jailed for 24 days pending trial, while the other two suspects were arrested on March 25 for 22 days, according to media reports.

Police and security forces conducted search operations around Zealand after the attack took place.

“Good police work, progress has now been made in the case of the attack on the Turkish Embassy. An attack on diplomatic representations of other countries is extremely serious. Therefore, I am glad the hard work of the police and Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET) seems to have borne fruit,” said Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen in a Twitter post on March 26.

No one was injured in the early morning attack on March 19 that caused minor damage to the exterior of the embassy building.
