Danish police have arrested two men named as accomplices in Saturday's attacks on a café and on a Copenhagen synagogue on Monday morning.

Little is known about the men, excepting that they are "young" and will not be identified due to their age.

"The two men are charged with helping through advice and deeds the perpetrator in relation to the shootings at Krudttonden and in Krystalgade," the Danish police said in a statement.

Omar El-Hussein, the suspected gunman behind the double shootings in Copenhagen who was shot dead on Sunday, was identified by Danish media as a 22-year-old with "a history of violent crime" - and who was released from prison just two weeks ago.

In the first attack, El-Hussein reportedly shot over 200 bullets into a café' holding a conference on Islam and free speech, which featured several controversial speakers, including possible target and Mohammed cartoonist Lars Vilks.

One man, a 55-year-old identified by the media was documentary film maker Finn Norgaard was killed at the event; three policemen were injured. El-Hussein escaped in a black Volkswagen Polo.

Hours later, he shot at a synagogue in the city center during a Bat Mitzvah, killing 37 year-old volunteer security guard Dan Uzan and wounding two others before fleeing on foot.

El-Hussein may have been linked with a mainly Muslim youth gang known as "The Brothas," Danish media said, according to the Telegraph; but a spokesman for the group denied any association with the terrorist.

"We know who he is," the spokesman said. "But he is not one of ours. He was a lone wolf who kept to himself. We didn't know that he was in such trouble. We condemn what happened."


MIM: Note what the leader of the Muslim youth gang The Brothas says in this posting about being the killers "best friend" and that the cartoonist "deserved to die".

Copenhagen Muslim Terrorist Consumed w/Hate for Jews, Uploaded Jihad Videos

Omar El-Hussein, the Copenhagen Muslim terrorist, was the son of Palestinian/Jordanian parents, a group whose violence has become a growing problem for Sweden, Norway and now… Denmark.

And his own people stand by him with the usual mix of defensiveness and conspiracy theories.

"We've put flowers here because we must remember him," said a young Arab man, who gave his name as Mohamed. "He was a good guy. We don't believe he did anything wrong. It wasn't like the police say." A placard placed with the flowers read: "May Allah be merciful, rest in peace" in both Arabic and Danish.

Despite his criminal record, another of his friends, an Arab man who gave his name as Benny, maintained that el-Hussein could not have carried out the shootings, which police suspect were inspired by the Charlie Hebdo killings in Paris last month.

"He wasn't someone who could kill people. He stabbed a guy, OK, but it was only in the leg," Benny said. "When we fight, we stab, but always in the leg, not to kill. I've stabbed ten or eleven people. I know he didn't have the money to buy an automatic gun. Here it costs 50,000 kroner (nearly £5,000)."

Sure he stabbed a guy, but it was only in the leg. Doesn't make him a killer.

During the conversation with a handful of young Arab men on the corner, who included one with a black scarf covering his face, an older bearded man approached, and took Mohamed aside. A few minutes later, he stopped answering questions and left, as did the others.

Another young man walking past said: "It was Isil [Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant]. They wanted to do something here like in Paris." He did not stop or identify himself.

That gives you a flavor of the community.

"There's only one terrorist, and that's the guy who drew the prophet," said Adnan Abdec, a 29-year-old Muslim who was not with the group but who watched its actions approvingly.

And, oh yes, he randomly tried to massacre Jews at a synagogue.

According to several classmates, whom Ekstra Bladet has been in touch with, the 22-year-old harbored an intense hatred of Jews. Although he had Palestinian roots, he was born and raised in Denmark."

"He was consumed with hatred of Jews and was very aggressive when he talked about the Israel-Palestine conflict, said a 22-year-old former classmate," according to the paper.

Ekstra Bladet also reported that about 45 minutes prior to the first attack, a video was posted to El-Hussein's Facebook page which featured a hymn about armed Jihad.

Things only got better when he went to prison.

El-Hussein's childhood friend and Brothas leader Abo Saddam, 24, said: "He went into prison a gang member, one of us. A petty criminal I suppose. He came out wanting to wage a holy war.

"I don't know who he spoke to in jail but he must have made friends with other Muslims who made him the way he was when he came out.

"I have known Omar my entire life. I have fought side by side with him. We smoked hashish together. But the person who came out of that jail was not Omar. It was someone else. He was inspired by the Charlie Hebdo attacks, I am sure of it. Anyone who makes a mockery of Islam deserves to die."
