Bombs exploded outside two Jewish-owned shops in central Copenhagen, injuring 12 people, police said. One bomb exploded at a Jewish food shop, blasting a hole in the sidewalk. The second, five minutes later, damaged a nearby Israeli travel agency. No one claimed responsibility for the blasts. Last July, 27 people were injured, one of them fatally, when a bomb wrecked a U.S. airline office in Copenhagen and two others damaged the city’s synagogue. The Islamic Jihad (Islamic Holy War) organization claimed responsibility for those blasts.
