One Killed In Shooting Near Danish Mosque

Danish police said a shooting outside a mosque in Copenhagen after prayers to mark the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan has left one person dead and at least one other injured.

A police spokesman said the shooting took place outside the mosque, which is predominantly frequented by Pakistani immigrants.

An eyewitness who attended the prayers told a local broadcaster that the shooting was in a parking lot next to the mosque, and followed an argument between two groups of young people.

The incident happened as worshippers were leaving the prayer service.
