Extremist inmates 'huge problem' for Denmark
In the ten weeks that followed February's twin fatal shootings in Copenhagen, the number of warnings about potentially radicalized prison inmates exploded.
The gunman who killed two people during the February 14-15 shootings at a Copenhagen cultural centre and synagogue is believed to have been radicalized while in prison and authorities now seem to be taking the threat more seriously.
Metroxpress reported on Monday that in the ten weeks that followed Omar El-Hussein's attack, the Danish Prison and Probation Service (Kriminalforsorgen) gave 59 reports warning the Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET) that 50 individual inmates are suspected of having radical beliefs.
