英语新闻:丹麦连发两起枪击案

当地时间2015年2月14日,丹麦首都哥本哈根发生枪击案,导致1人死亡,3名警察受伤。据报道,枪击案发生在哥本哈根市区的一个文化中心,案发时法国驻丹麦大使齐默雷及瑞典艺术家维尔克斯等人正在参加该中心举办的一场讨论活动。警方初步认定该枪击案意在刺杀维尔克斯,他曾因发表针对伊斯兰教先知穆罕默德的漫画而引起轩然大波。

美国白宫发表声明谴责这一“悲惨的袭击案件”。

据报道,此份声明由美国白宫国家安全委员会所发出。然而在声明发出后不久,哥本哈根一个犹太人教堂发生第二起枪击案,丹麦警方称,一人在枪击中被击中头部,2名警察受伤。目前嫌犯已经逃走。目前尚不清楚这两起袭击案是否有关联。哥本哈根警方警告居民,不要在街道上停留。

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — A gunman opened fire on a Copenhagen cultural center, killing one man and wounding three police officers in what authorities called a terror attack against a free speech event featuring an artist who had caricatured the Prophet Muhammad.

After searching for the gunman for hours, police reported another shooting near a synagogue in downtown Copenhagen after midnight Sunday. One person was shot in the head and two police officers were shot in the arms and legs, police said, adding it wasn't clear whether the two incidents were linked. The gunman fled on foot, and police warned people to be vigilant and follow the instructions of officers flooding the city center.

The earlier shooting came a month after extremists killed 12 people at a satirical newspaper in Paris that had sparked Muslim outrage with its depictions of Muhammad.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the first shooting, which took place shortly before 4 p.m. on Saturday. Danish police said the gunman used an automatic weapon to shoot through the windows of the Krudttoenden cultural center, which TV footage showed were riddled with bullet holes. The gunman then fled in a carjacked Volkswagen Polo that was found later a few kilometers (miles) away, police said.

They said the victim was a man about 40 who was inside the cultural center. He has not yet been identified. Two of the wounded officers belonged to the Danish security service PET, which said the circumstances surrounding the shooting "indicate that we are talking about a terror attack."

Lars Vilks, a Swedish artist who has faced numerous death threats for caricaturing the Prophet Muhammad, was one of the main speakers at Saturday's panel discussion, titled "Art, blasphemy and freedom of expression." He was whisked away by his bodyguards unharmed as the shooting began.

Vilks, 68, later told The Associated Press he believed he was the intended target of the shooting.

"What other motive could there be? It's possible it was inspired by Charlie Hebdo," he said, referring to the Jan. 7 attack by Islamic extremists on the French newspaper in Paris. He spoke from an undisclosed location for his own security.(via AP)
