Denmark police evacuate shopping centers and airport after bomb scare

Police in the towns of Roskilde and Slagelse have evacuated two shopping centers following telephone threats. They said there was no immediate indication of an actual explosion.

Danish officials emptied two shopping malls in Roskilde and Slagelse - close to Copenhagen - and a nearby airport in the town of Tune on Monday, after police received two phone calls threatening explosions.

Police said in a brief statement that nobody had been hurt at any of the sites, with the airport already emptied and Ro's Torv - a shopping center in Roskilde - still being evacuated. Roskilde airport caters to roughly 21,000 passengers each year.

Stressing that officers continued to investigate the threats, police also said that there appeared to be no immediate danger.
