COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Police arrested 50 people after mobs of youths torched cars and school and lobbed rocks at officers and firefighters in a sixth consecutive night of violence in Danish cities, police said Saturday.
Youths were arrested overnight in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Ringsted, Slagelse and other cities, police spokesman Jan Marker said. At least 19 cars were torched in Copenhagen, he said.
“It’s been more spread out in the country but it’s not been as bad (in Copenhagen) as the previous nights,” he said.
