Copenhagen Court Acquits Four Men of Assisting With Terrorism

A Copenhagen court acquitted four men of assisting with acts of terrorism last year when Omar El-Hussein shot two people in the Danish capital.

The four men, aged from 21 to 32, had been detained since shortly after the Feb. 15, 2015, incident, where El-Hussein shot a person at a free-speech meeting and a civilian guard at a synagogue. Prosecutors had said the men had aided El-Hussein, who the next morning was killed in a fire exchange with police.

The court found two of the men guilty of illegal weapon possession, according to a statement published by police on Tuesday.
