Denmark attacks: Copenhagen comes together for candlelit vigil

Tens of thousands of people have gathered in towns and cities across Denmark to commemorate the victims of weekend gun attacks in the capital.

The Prime Minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, attended the main rally in Copenhagen, which began with a minute's silence.

The suspected gunman, named by local media as Omar El-Hussein, was shot dead by police on Sunday.
