An explosion damaged a police station in the Nørrebro area of Copenhagen early (local time) on Saturday, August 10, resulting in no casualties. Police officials reported that Saturday's blast was a "deliberate act" and that an associated investigation had been launched, with no indication that the explosion was linked to international terrorist organizations.
A heightened security presence is to be expected in Copenhagen over the coming days.

Individuals in Copenhagen are advised to monitor developments, report suspicious objects and behavior to police, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
