2 suspected accomplices of Denmark gunman to be held in custody for 10 days

Two men suspected of helping the gunman behind the deadly attacks in Copenhagen were put into custody for 10 days Monday as Danes mourned the victims of a shooting spree that authorities said may have been inspired by last month’s terror attacks in Paris. They were accused of helping the gunman evade authorities and get rid of a weapon during the manhunt that ended early Sunday when the attacker was killed in a shootout with police, said Michael Juul Eriksen, the defense attorney for one of the two suspects. Prosecutors had asked a judge to place them in four weeks of solitary confinement and the relatively short period of detention suggests the case against the men is “thin,” added Juul Eriksen’s assistant, Anders Rohde. Rohde was speaking to reporters after a four-hour custody hearing held behind closed doors for the men, who were not named.
