Copenhagen – Danish police said on Wednesday that two Swedish nationals were the main suspects in an explosion at the Danish Tax Agency building in Copenhagen last week.
A 22-year-old Swedish man was arrested overnight into Wednesday and police were searching for a second Swedish man, Chief Police Inspector Jorgen Bergen Skov told reporters in Copenhagen.
Skov said the 22-year-old was arrested in the southern Swedish city of Malmo and was to be extradited to face a pre-trial detention hearing. Police have requested a closed-door hearing due to the ongoing investigation.
A warrant has been issued for the second suspect, who remains at large.
The August 6 explosion shattered windows and damaged the facade of the building. One passer-by was lightly injured by debris, but the two people inside the building at the time of the blast were not hurt.
