Turkish embassy in Denmark attacked with petrol bombs”

Police believe that up to four perpetrators were involved.

Samuelsen said, "The Turkish Embassy stands under our protection as does all embassies in Copenhagen".

The Turkish Embassy in Denmark, located in Østerbro near the border with Hellerup, was attacked last night by people throwing Molotov cocktails.

Torben Madsen, the spokesperson of the Copenhagen police department, said that the incident was first noticed by patrolling officers at 02:55 a.m. local time.

Hansen said nothing about who the attackers might be, but said nobody got hurt though the building was damaged.

He noted that the initial investigations suggest four suspects threw four Molotov cocktails at the building but did not share details about the motives of the attackers.

The area was cordoned off and police were examining CCTV footage and searching for DNA evidence.

Attacks on Turkish buildings in Europe have intensified since Turkey launched "Operation Olive Branch" on January 20 to remove the People's Protection Units (YPG) from Syria's northwestern Afrin district.

The attack took place the day after Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkish-backed Syrian rebels had taken "total control" of the centre of Afrin, a Kurdish-majority city in northern Syria.
