“Denmark’s Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen says she feels ‘saddened and shaken’ but ‘fine’ after being attacked in the street in Copenhagen. Ms Frederiksen is said to have experienced minor whiplash after a man walked up to her and struck her in Copenhagen’s old town on Friday evening. A 39-year-old Polish man, who was arrested, appeared at the Court of Frederiksberg for a preliminary hearing on Saturday. He was charged with violence against a person in public service, and denies guilt, local media reported. The suspect was remanded in custody until 20 June, Copenhagen Police said on X. Ms Frederiksen’s office told the AFP news agency she had been taken to a hospital for a check-up after the incident. Her official schedule for Saturday was cancelled.” (06/09/24)
