Trio arrested in Denmark for praising Iran parade attack

"Three people have been arrested suspected of violating the Danish law... on condoning terrorism," a police statement said.

The three arrested individuals live in Ringsted, a town 60km to the southwest of Copenhagen, Ritzau reports.

The three members of the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz (ASMLA) are accused of praising the five commandos who attacked a military parade in the Iranian city of Ahvaz on September 22, spraying the crowd with gunfire and killing 24 people.

Iran has blamed the attack on the ASMLA, which advocates for an Arab state in a southwestern Iranian province. Tehran calls it a terrorist organisation.

The Danish intelligence service PET on October 30th said it had prevented an assassination attempt by Tehran against three exiled Iranians living in Denmark, including the exiled leader of ASMLA.

PE T has provided protection for the ASMLA leader since early 2018 "as a result of tangible threats which, in the assessment of PET, emanate from Iran".

Those threats were behind the police operation that led to the closure of a number of bridges and ferry routes on September 28th this year, Ritzau writes.

"Despite the fact that they are suspected of having committed crimes, they continue to be protected by extensive security measures because of the threat posed to them," Danish police said in a statement Wednesday.

A Norwegian of Iranian origin was arrested on October 21st and placed in custody, suspected of planning the assassination and spying for Iran.

Denmark recalled its ambassador to Iran over the foiled attack, and said it was consulting with its allies about possible sanctions against Tehran.

Iran has denied the Danish allegations, calling them "a continuation of conspiracies by the enemies of goo d and developing relations between Iran and Europe."

tipperne bird sanctuary allows bird-watching on denmark's ringkøbing fjord

tipperne bird sanctuary by johansen skovsted arkitekter is sited at the tip of the peninsula in the southern part of denmark’s ringkøbing fjord. with its unique nature, the location marks an important stopping point for migratory birds and is home to europe’s oldest continuous bird counts. previously, public access to the area has been very limited, but with the establishment of new facilities the area has now been opened to visitors. these facilities consist of such simple additions to the landscape as a bird hide, watchtower, workshop, walking paths and a conversion of the ‘tipper house’ research station. the new structures serve as objects in the landscape, each with distinctive characteristics and subtle mutual relationships to one another and their surroundings.

the development of the johansen skovsted arkitekter bird watching tower was influenced by the expansive, flat, wetland geography and dense moisture in the air, together with the techniques of a local factory specialising in the production of cylindrical iron masts. the tower’s platform offers an elevated frame of the landscape, a space which can be either closed to offer a secluded position for bird watchers, or opened to the view. the structural system is designed as a framework which expands as it rises, allowing a small footprint to incrementally widen to support a larger platform above. all individual elements, including handrails, stairs, landings and balustrades, form a part of the tower’s overall structural system.

the pre-existing ‘tipper house’ had been transformed into a visitors center and research station. the building now hosts exhibitions, a multipurpose room, dining room and kitchen on the ground floor, a library with work space on the first floor and alcove sleeping areas in the gables. the renovation was realized through a number of subtle interventions in order to retain the quality and character of the existing building. while the only visible alteration from the exterior is a new external ramp, on the interior new beams and columns replace and reinforce the load-bearing walls. red pipes, radiators and wind gauges draw attention to the research function of the building. integrated furniture forms a new arch ive for bird counts which has a textural quality reminiscent of the plants in the landscape and thatch of the roof.

the bird hide is a triangular steel structure which acts as a stopping point along a walking trail. visitors enter a raised, hidden platform, from which wildlife might be seen up-close through a narrow slot opening. the structure is assembled using 6 mm plates of corten steel, with edge reinforcements which simultaneously function as assembly profiles and gutters whilst connecting the structure into the terrain.

Number of overdoses in decline in Denmark …

According to a new report from the health authority Sundhedsstyrelsen, 254 people in Denmark died last year as a result of a drug overdoses â€" a drop compared to the year before.

But the report also revealed that the average age of OD deaths fell from 41.7 years to 40.9 as a result of more young people dying from drug ingestion. One explanation is the very potent cocaine that can be found in Denmark at the moment.


“You have to assume that the rising number of poisonings and deaths related to cocaine are connected to the strong cocaine on the market right now. When drugs are potent, the risk of overdoses increases and it’s simply become a more dangerous drug,” said Kari Grasaasen, a spokesperson with Sundhedsstyrelsen.

Opioids main cause
The report (here in Danish) revealed that the purity of cocaine in Denmark at the moment was at about 60 percent, the highest level in 25 years. Compared to 2016, there was a 38 percent increase of cocaine ODs last year.

But most OD-related deaths in Denmark continue to be brought on by heroin and other opioids. Overall, though, the health authorities are pleased with the decline in deaths.

“It’s always positive when we see fewer drug-related deaths and we hope that the trend continues. But as long as the drugs are here, it’s difficult to completely avoid accidents and injuries,” said Grasaasen.

Denmark's bacon exports damaging environment: Greenpeace

The deal is set to earn Danish Crown 2.3 billion kroner, Ritzau reports.

Greenpeace agricultural policy advisor Kristian Sloth criticised the trade deal, citing
environmental impact.

“I’m very dejected. I’m embarrassed for my country,” Sloth said.

“Meat is the world’s least sustainable food product. It is the absolute worst thing you can produce, and we’re world champions of it in Denmark,” he continued.

“Our nature and environment must now suffer for the sake of meat for people in China. That’s insane,” he said.

Danish Crown opened a processing factory in Shanghai earlier this year. It is this facility which will process and package the meat for Chinese consumers.

Sloth called for political restrictions on market forces that could cause significant environmental harm.

He also said that a progra mme on green policy presented by the government last month failed to address pollution caused by pork production.

“You cannot blame Danish Crown, who are reaping the rewards as their entire apparatus allows,” he said.

“The agricultural sector has been given a free pass by the government. It is Danish politicians who are allowing our land to become an ammonia puddle,” he said, also calling Denmark “a real ‘oink-oink’ country” and “the world’s meat factory”.

“There is no excuse for this, if you consider the climate crisis we are facing,” he said.

Sloth cited a study from Germany’s Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research which found that plant-based agriculture has the capacity to feed three to four times as many people as meat.

“Danish politicians must cut down on the number of animals in Denmark. That would have an immediate effect in climate impact,” he said.
