Islamic centre arsonist arrested

A man is arrested after arson attacks on an Islamic cultural centre in Copenhagen.

    Cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad published in Denmark in September last year led to protests 

    The man, 56, is believed to be behind several attacks in the city, including the vandalisation of a synagogue.

     

    Police said he would receive treatement for his illness.
