Danish shooting: Audio of moment gunman struck in Copenhagen cafe

An audio recording obtained exclusively by the BBC captures the moment a gunman struck a free speech debate in the Danish capital, Copenhagen.

A manhunt is under way for the suspect who targeted the event at the Krudttoennen cafe in the Oesterbro district of the city.

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.

A speaker at the event is interrupted by a volley of shots.
