Denmark’s Prime Minister Assaulted in Copenhagen

Denmark’s Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen was assaulted by a man in Copenhagen this week but was reportedly unharmed.

“Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen was beaten on Friday evening at Kultorvet Square in Copenhagen by a man who was subsequently arrested. The Prime Minister is shocked by the incident,” her office said in a statement.

The incident comes just a few weeks after Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico was shot during a government meeting and rushed to a hospital.

Fico was dragged to a car after shots rang out.

The prime minister suffered wounds to his chest and head, witnesses present at the scene said.

One of the country’s deputy prime ministers, Tomáš Taraba, wrote, “The entire hateful opposition has blood [on their hands].”

Leaders across the globe condemned the attack against Fico.
