Dozens of bouquets of flowers were left Monday at the site where gunman Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein was killed by police.
Flowers where the Copenhagen terrorist was killed by the police.
This afternoon a group of young men removed the flowers from the street memorial.
They kicked the flowers and carried them away.
The Local reported:
A group of young men wearing hoods to partially cover their faces has removed flowers that were laid at the Copenhagen spot where the presumed gunman was killed by police.
The men can be seen in a video from TV2 News kicking the flowers and carrying them away.
One of the men told reporters that they removed the flowers because it is not a Muslim tradition to lay flowers for dead people.
“What [the gunman] did was wrong,” said one of the onlookers, Mohammed, who didn’t give his last name.
Others seemed less understanding.
“Flowers for a despicable coward on Svanevej. This is a photo no one wants to see. It shows that there is unfortunately an ‘us’ and ‘them’. The essential thing is then is who is ‘us’ and ‘them’. Time and discussion will show,” leading Venstre politician Søren Pind wrote on Facebook, posting a photo of the flower display.
There was a big pile of flowers placed at the site.
