Copenhagen synagogue peace ring gets go-ahead
A Danish Muslim's plans to hold a peace ring around the Copenhagen synagogue where volunteer security guard Dan Uzan was shot and killed last month have been given delayed approval by Copenhagen Police.
Copenhagen resident Niddal El-Jabri first approached police officials for permission to hold a show of solidarity for the Jewish community in the week after the twin shootings that left 37-year-old Jewish security guard Dan Uzan and 55-year-old filmmaker Finn Nørgaard dead and six police officers injured.
At that time, Copenhagen Police rejected the request out of security concerns. Although El-Jabri said he was disappointed by the decision, he expressed full faith in the judgement of the police and said he would keep pursuing his plan.
