Mette Frederiksen, Danish Prime Minister, was assaulted on Kultorvet Square in central Copenhagen and was not injured. The assailant was put under arrest after the event. Declared against European values, the strike was criticized by EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and Danish Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsen. The attack was verified by Frederiksen's office, which also expressed disbelief and observed she was clearly worried later. Though it happened days before the EU elections, the incident had nothing to do with a political event. Petteri Orpo, among other European leaders, supported Frederiksen and urged her to keep strong. Police are not yet adding further specifics, so an inquiry is in progress.
