Dozens of bouquets of flowers were left at the site where terrorist Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein was killed by police.
Flowers were placed on the street where the Copenhagen terrorist was gunned down by police.
The Daily Mail reported:
The gunman who killed two people in Copenhagen was today buried in a Muslim cemetery in the city, despite objections from the Islamic group that owns it.
Omar El-Hussein, 22, murdered two people last weekend following a bloody rampage through the Danish capital that ended when he was killed in a shootout with police.
The ceremony at the Islamic Society of Denmark was attended by approximately 500 mourners and sympathisers, before he was buried in a Muslim cemetery on the outskirts of the city.
But Ahmet Deniz, head of the Islamic Burial Fund’s support group told newspaper Jyllands-Posten, that he had concerns before the ceremony about the burial.
He said that the group said it had considered denying a request by El-Hussein’s parents to have him buried in their cemetery, but that its rules did not allow for it.
He added: ‘My concern is over extremist attitudes and actions on both sides. Both from his friends and from young Danish people who perhaps could also riot later.’
The funeral was open to the public, but reports from the scene said it was mostly attended by young men, who were described as ‘wearing large black coats with many of them having covered their faces’.
