Danish PM visits synagogue after fatal attacks

Police in Copenhagen have shot dead a man they believe was behind two deadly attacks in the Danish capital hours earlier.

It came after one person was killed and three police officers injured at a free speech debate in a cafe on Saturday.

In the second attack, a Jewish man was killed and two police officers wounded near the city's main synagogue.

Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt visited the synagogue on Sunday and vowed to do everything possible to protect the Jewish community in her country.
