Dane arrested for praising arson attack
A Danish Facebook group has been shut down by the social media site on the grounds of "glorifying" Sunday's arson attack against the Islamic Society centre in Copenhagen, leading to one of its members being arrested while others are currently under investigation.
The Danish Facebook group 'No to mosques – sincerely' (Nej til moskéer – oprigtigt) was closed down by Facebook on Tuesday, and a man affiliated with the group has since been arrested on charges of inciting crime.
Shortly after the recent arson attack on an Islamic centre, many of the group's fans posted comments on the page that "glorified" the act, according to the social media site.
