COPENHAGEN Oct 17 A spate of bomb threats in
Denmark forced the evacuation of two provincial airports and two
shopping malls on Monday and briefly closed a university campus
in Copenhagen, police said.
It was unclear who was behind the threats.
Additional threats were sent to other locations in the
capital area, including Copenhagen Airport, but were deemed
hoaxes partly because they were all from the same sender, the
police told Danish broadcaster TV2.
"There have been a number of bomb threats in a short period
over the whole country," Danish police said on Twitter. The
Copenhagen Business School was briefly evacuated but allowed
students back after checks, according to the newspaper Ekstra
An airport outside Roskilde, a province about 35 km (22
miles) from Copenhagen, was evacuated at midday as well as RO's
Torv, a shopping mall in central Roskilde, police said. A
shopping mall in Slagelse, near Roskilde, was evacuated along
with a domestic airport in north-east Denmark.
"It wasn't chaotic or hectic, but there was this feeling of
apprehension," Anton Bestle, an eyewitness who was evacuated
from RO's Torv, told Reuters.
