Denmark to deport four for attack on Turkish embassy

Baku, February 21, AZERTAC

A Molotov cocktail attack on the Turkish Embassy in Copenhagen last year has resulted in deportation sentences for four convicted in connection with the crime, according to The local Denmark.

The four men were convicted at Copenhagen City Court on Wednesday morning for attacking the Turkish Embassy with petrol bombs in March 2018.

The men, aged 19, 22, 23 and 24, were found guilty of having thrown several Molotov cocktails at the building in the Østerbro neighbourhood.

Three were given prison sentences of one year and nine months, while a one year, six month-long custodial sentence was given to the fourth.

All four will be deported from Denmark and given 12-year bans from entering the country.

Several people attending the trial broke into tears as the sentences were read out, Ritzau reports.

All four men are part of Copenhagen’s Kurdish community, the news agency writes.
