WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama called Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt to offer condolences following attacks in Copenhagen, the White House said via Twitter on Monday.

Obama expressed US solidarity with its Danish allies and invited Denmark to participate in a summit to counter violent extremism this week.

Police in Copenhagen shot dead on Sunday the gunman suspected of carrying out attacks on a synagogue and a free speech event on Saturday that killed two people and injured others.
