COPENHAGEN: Armed Danish police today raided an Internet cafe in a major operation in Copenhagen near the spot where officers killed the suspected gunman behind fatal shootings, local media said.   

TV2, which reported from the scene, showed footage of armed officers in dark uniforms outside the Internet cafe and said at least two people had been taken away by police.            

"It's part of our investigation," a police official told broadcaster DR.  

The swoop came hours after police told reporters they were carrying out searches in several parts of the Danish capital.        

The weekend shootings - one targeting a meeting on freedom of expression, the other the city's main synagogue - have come as a shock to Denmark, which has so far escaped any major acts of terror.
