Over 1,200 Arrested in Weekend Protests in Copenhagen

As the protest drew to a close, nearly 1,000 people were arrested when police cordoned off the tail end of the march. Charges were filed against thirteen protesters. Amnesty International Denmark has called for an inquiry into the arrests, saying all but a handful of people were unfairly targeted. On Sunday, over 200 people were arrested on a second day of protests.
