Danish shooting: Eyewitness describes blasphemy debate attack
An eyewitness to a gun attack at a blasphemy debate in Copenhagen has described how he thought the sound of gunfire was "fireworks" when it began.
Dennis Myhoff-Brink, who was attending the conference, said he heard "about 20 or 30 shots" and people "yelling in Arabic".
Controversial Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks, who has drawn caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad, is understood to have been present at the debate, as well as the French ambassador, Francois Zimeray.
