Saudi Arabia condemns Copenhagen, Chapel Hill shootings

February 15, 2015 18:14

Saudi Arabia on Sunday condemned a deadly attack in Denmark which bore similarities to Islamist shootings in Paris, while also deploring the killing of three Muslims in North Carolina.

Two civilians died in attacks in Copenhagen on Saturday and five police were wounded. Danish police on Sunday shot dead a man they believe was responsible for the two attacks at an event promoting freedom of speech and on a synagogue.

"The kingdom of Saudi Arabia followed with strong sorrow the ugly terrorist and criminal incidents that occurred lately in the Danish capital Copenhagen and in the US state of North Carolina that resulted in the death and injuring of innocent," state news agency SPA quoted an official source as saying in a statement.

In North Carolina three young Muslims were shot dead last week.
