COPENHAGEN, February, 16. /TASS/. On Monday the Denmark police have charged two men with complicity in terrorist attacks in Copenhagen cafe Cruttenden and the city's synagogue.
The men detained on Sunday are charged with complicity, attempted homicide and aggravated assault. In addition, the Penal Code article on the possession of firearms has been violated, the lawyer Dorit Borgor has told the Ritsaus Bureau Agency. According to the accusation the men supplied the terrorist with firearms that he used in his attacks.
The hearing is held in private. One of the accused denies the guilt, the lawyer has claimed.
On Sunday the Danish TV has reported the suspected terrorist’s name – Omar Abdel Hamid al-Hussein. According to the police, he was 22, grew up in Denmark and had problems with law as he was brought to justice for the violation of firearms possession law and violent crime.
According to the Ekstra Bladet newspaper, he left the detention center where he had served a two-year sentence for stabbing attack in a subway car.
February, 15 in the morning the terrorist was shot dead by the police near the Norreport metro and railway station. Two pistols were found on him. During the house-check of his apartment the police found the automatic firearm that had probably been used in the attack in the Cruttenden cafe, where the public discussion “Art, blasphemy and freedom of speech” was held.
On Saturday at 6 p.m. local time a man in black opened fire through windows on the participants of the discussion and fired 40 shots. The man fled the crime scene in a stolen car that he later left in the same section of the city.
According to the police, the aim of the crime was to kill the Swedish artist Lars Vilks who is the author of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed. The security and counter-intelligence service qualified the event as a terrorist act. At night into Sunday the same man attacked the synagogue. After 5 a.m. he was detained at the Norreport metro and railway station for identity verification. He opened fire and was eliminated.
The terrorist attack resulted in two killed and five injured people.
