Yahya Hassan assaulted at Central Station
The poet Yahya Hassan was assaulted with punches to his head and body while waiting on a platform at Copenhagen Central Station yesterday, according to media reports.
According to Jyllands-Posten newspaper, DSB staff quickly apprehended a 24-year-old man who was subsequently arrested by police and will be charged today with politically-motivated assault.
"The assailant hit him in the head from behind with a closed fist several times and shouted that he was a infidel and should die," Kenneth Jensen, the investigation leader for the Copenhagen Police, told Jyllands-Posten.
