(Two of the victims of the attack in Copenhagen will be identified as some folks at a fancy building any minute now I bet)
Police in Copenhagen have shot dead a ‘jihadi’ gunman responsible for two attacks on the city in which a film director and Jewish security guard were killed yesterday.
The shooter, who has not been named, was killed after opening fire on officers surrounding the station in Norrebro at around 5am today.
Two men were killed in separate attacks at a free speech event and a synagogue yesterday.
Finn Norgaard has been named by local media as the 55-year-old killed at Krudttoenden cafe in the north of the city.

A carnival parade has been called off at short notice in Braunschweig, northern Germany, due to the threat of an Islamist attack, police said.
A “specific threat of an Islamist attack” was identified by state security sources, they said in a statement.
Police urged people planning to attend to stay at home.
The parade – a well-known regional attraction – was cancelled only 90 minutes before it was due to start.
“Many people arriving at the train station were already dressed up and very disappointed – but we didn’t want to take any risks,” police spokesman Thomas Geese was quoted as saying.
The Islamic State (Isis) in Mosul, northern Iraq, has reportedly chopped the hands off three women for using mobile phones.
In addition, five men are also said to have been flogged for using their phones – which the Islamic State consider a crime.
“Today evening, the IS militants cut three women’s hands off for unknown charges,” an anonymous source in the Nineveh province told the Iraqi News, while later reports suggested they were punished for using mobile phones.
The source added: “They also whipped five people for using cell-phones to contact their relatives while standing on the celebration stage in the Cultural Compound in central Mosul.”

and raised questions about the reporting of sexual abuse in a close-knit religious community.
The allegations that Abdullah Saleem of the Institute of Islamic Education in Elgin, a Chicago suburb, sexually abused an adult female school employee surfaced in December, when a leading Muslim scholar referred to them in a blog.
(In this interview with Lars Vilks not only do they not show his drawing while pretending to show his drawing, but the questions they ask him are hostile. He is the victim here from the ground on down. The play they give people who want to kill him on the other hand is sympathetic. CNN is an agent of the enemy at this point. When you watch this interview, ask yourself if the interviewer would have asked Galileo the same question about setting out to deliberately provoke.
French police arrested a 19-year-old man of Muslim origin on Sunday after he made death threats to two leading Jewish figures, French media reported Sunday.
The teen, identified only by the name Amin, emailed Islamic State decapitation videos to the Israeli consul-general in Marseille, Barnea Hasid, and Jewish member of French parliament Meir Habib. In the email, Amin threatened the two Jewish figures with a similar fate.

A Muslim student at the University of Texas, Arlington admitted she lied when she claimed that a man followed her to school on Wednesday and threatened her with a gun.
The student posted the claim on Facebook and made reference to Tuesday’s triple murder of three Muslim students in Chapel Hill, N.C.
Numerous Muslim groups are alleging that that shooting was a hate crime.
The UTA student claimed that at around 9 a.m. on Wednesday a white man driving a white pickup truck with a Texas flag on the antenna followed her for six miles to campus.

Hundreds took to the streets of Mersin, Turkey – the hometown of brutally murdered student Özgecan Aslan – to protest against her killing. Others joined in similar demonstrations in Ankara and Istanbul, according to local media.
Hundreds of women attended Aslan’s funeral in her native town of Mersin on the country’s southeastern coast. Many of them defied the imam conducting the funeral, after he called on them to stay in the back. Instead, they occupied the front. Women also carried the coffin before and after prayer.
Thank you UK Pete, Don C., Draculea, M., and many more. Its early yet and more to come. A few people had pretty much predicted yesterday’s attacks and Oz-Rita sent a link to a webpage showing social media having threats by muslims that Denmark was next after the Paris attacks.
It might be a good time to do some analysis and see if we can figure out where the next one is and when.
