On June 7th, in Copenhagen, a man attacked Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen in a public square called Kutorvet. The police arrested the man afterward, and the prime minister was shocked by what happened.

The Copenhagen Police confirmed the incident in a post online but didn’t give further details.

Many politicians condemned the attack and offered their sympathy. Danish Environment Minister Magnus Heunicke said such things shouldn’t happen in Denmark, a country known for its safety and freedom. He urged everyone to come together and support each other, despite political differences.

This attack occurred just before the EU election, where Danish voters were about to cast their votes.

Sadly, violence against politicians has been happening during this election time. In Slovakia, Prime Minister Robert Fico survived an attempted assassination. He said he doesn’t hate the person who tried to kill him and suggested his views on Russia and NATO might have made him a target.

In Germany, a teenager beat up Matthias Ecke, a member of the Social Democrat party, while he was campaigning. And in another incident, Heinrich Koch, a candidate from the far-right Alternative for Germany party, was stabbed with a box cutter in Mannheim.
