Copenhagen buses burned in ‘anti-Israel attack’Archive
COPENHAGEN: Four buses were destroyed and a fifth was vandalized in a pre-dawn fire with anti-Israel graffiti at a bus depot here on Friday.Investigator Jens Moeller Jensen said police suspected arson and were investigating possible links to a decision last week by city transit officials to remove bus ads by a pro-Palestinian group calling for a boycott of Israeli goods.
He said “there could be a political motive. We consider this one theory ... but we cannot link it to anything for now”.
The buses were parked for the night at a depot in northern Copenhagen. Photographs from the scene showed the badly charred buses surrounded by firefighting foam.
Moeller Jensen said no one was injured and police had no suspects.
