A funeral was held on 20 February for the man who killed two and injured five in twin Copenhagen attacks at the weekend.

The ceremony for 22-year-old Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein took place at the premises of the Islamic Society of Denmark following Friday prayers.

According to Danish media, some 500 people had gathered for the ceremony.

The coffin was then taken to the Muslim cemetery in Broendby, south of Copenhagen.

The gunman first attacked a cafe hosting a free speech event on 14 February, allegedly trying to kill Lars Vilks, a Swedish artist who has received death threats for drawings of the Prophet Mohammad. Though Vilks was unharmed, a 55-year-old film maker participating in the event was killed.

He then attacked a synagogue, killing a guard, before police killed him during a shootout on Sunday (15 February) morning.
