Danish PM Mette Frederiksen Attacked in Copenhagen; Assailant Arrested

In a heartfelt message, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his deep concern and condemnation following the attack on Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen. The incident occurred on Friday evening at Kultorvet, a popular square in Copenhagen, where Frederiksen was struck by a man. The assailant was swiftly apprehended, according to an official statement from her office.

“Profoundly troubled by the news of the assault on Frederiksen, the PM of Denmark. We condemn the attack. Wishing good health to my friend,” PM Modi tweeted, extending his well-wishes for Frederiksen’s speedy recovery.

The attack on Frederiksen has drawn quick condemnation from European Union leaders and other international figures, highlighting the rising concern over the safety of public officials. This incident is the latest in a disturbing trend of assaults targeting politicians across Europe.

Just last month, Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico survived an assassination attempt in the town of Handlova. Fico was targeted with four gunshots at close range while he was greeting supporters following a government meeting. He underwent two extensive surgeries and remains in recovery.

These attacks underscore the volatile political climate in Europe, particularly as politicians engage with the public during campaign periods. As the EU elections approach, the safety of political figures has become a critical issue, prompting calls for increased security measures and a reassessment of public engagement protocols.

Prime Minister Modi’s message not only emphasizes the solidarity between nations but also highlights the global concern for the safety of leaders who are often vulnerable while serving their countries. The international community continues to watch closely, hoping for a swift resolution to these security challenges.
