Turkey condemns attacks in Denmark

- Foreign Ministry slams 'terror attacks' in Copenhagen.

ANKARA (AA) - Turkey has condemned the Copenhagen attacks which saw two people shot dead and five wounded.

"We strongly condemn the terror attacks perpetrated against a cafe and a synagogue in Copenhagen. We extend our condolences to the brotherly Danish people, convey our sympathies to their families and wish a speedy recovery to the wounded," the Turkish Foreign Ministry said on Monday.

The attacks, which began in Copenhagen on Saturday, saw one civilian killed and three police officers wounded when a gunman attacked a free-speech event called "Art, Blasphemy and Freedom of Expression."

In the early hours of Sunday morning, a second shooting took place at a synagogue, killing a Jewish community member who was on security duty. Two police officers were also wounded.

The gunman was later shot dead in a clash with police.
