COPENHAGEN: Denmark's government has pledged 970 million kroner (USD 130 million) to strengthen anti-terrorism measures, including by boosting foreign and domestic intelligence gathering.
The announcement follows weekend attacks against a free speech event and a synagogue left two people dead and five wounded in Copenhagen.
The government started drafting the plans last month after lawmakers demanded a review of anti-terror measures following the terror attacks by Islamic extremists in Paris.
Social Democratic Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt says the plan includes 415 million kroner (USD 56 million) to boost efforts to monitor Danes joining Islamic militant groups abroad and 200 million kroner to the domestic intelligence agency.
The center-right opposition is expected to back the government's plan. The gunman who carried out the weekend attacks was killed by a SWAT team early Sunday.
