    A Danish man living in South Africa has been arrested after police claim to have found 21 pieces of female genitalia stashed inside his freezer. His arrest came after his wife, from Lesotho, told police he drugged her and cut off her genitalia while incapacitated. Named by Danish newspaper BT as 63-year-old Peter Frederiksen, it was revealed he had openly discussed practising female genital mutilation with a journalist in the past. Hangwani Mulaudzi, a South African police spokesman, told the paper: 'We have found 21 genitals from 21 women. 'The man's wife is one of the women. We are now...

    Denmark's opposition parties have beaten the ruling coalition after a close general election. With all mainland votes counted, the centre-right group led by ex-PM Lars Lokke Rasmussen beat PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt's centre-left coalition, although her party is the largest. Ms Thorning-Schmidt has now stood down as Social Democratic Party leader. The right-wing, anti-immigration Danish People's Party will become the second-largest in parliament. In a victory speech just before 01:30 local time (23:30 GMT), Mr Rasmussen - who led the country between 2009 and 2011 - said: "Four years ago, we returned the keys to the PM's office. I said that...

    The Danish newspaper famous for its decision a decade ago to publish cartoons mocking Islam and the prophet Muhammad, said Friday that it won't republish cartoons from French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo because it's afraid of being attacked. "It shows that violence works," the newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, explained in an editorial.<> Islamic terrorists attacked the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris Wednesday, killing 10 journalists and two police officers in the process. It is widely believed that the murderous assault was revenge for the magazines satirical portrayals of Muslims.

Danish custom officers check a unindentified driver from the Netherlands at the Danish-German border in Padborg, Denmark This figure will rise to 98 by the end of the year.

    COPENHAGEN (AFP) The first launch attempt of a homemade rocket built by two Danes failed on Sunday because of a technical glitch, according to Danish media. Live footage of the launch off the Baltic island of Bornholm appeared to show brown smoke coming out of the rocket after the countdown. Experts interviewed by TV2 News said the likely cause was a failure of the ignition system. After an inspection, the builders of the rocket decided against a second launch and did not set a date for a new attempt. Peter Madsen and Kristian von Bengtsson have toiled for over...

    In 1978-9 I was living and studying in Denmark. But in 1978 - even in Copenhagen , one didn't see Muslim immigrants. The Danish population embraced visitors, celebrated the exotic, went out of its way to protect each of its citizens. It was proud of its new brand of socialist liberalism one in development since the conservatives had lost power in 1929 - a system where no worker had to struggle to survive, where one ultimately could count upon the state as in, perhaps, no other western nation at the time. The rest of Europe saw the Scandinavians as free-thinking,...

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark,- Danish air force officials said four soldiers were sent home from the U.N. mission in Lebanon for excessive drinking. Tactical Air Command spokesman Lars Skjoldan said military personnel are allowed two drinks two days per week, but the four soldiers were extremely intoxicated when their commanding officer confronted them, the Copenhagen Post reported Thursday. He said the alcohol consumption occurred during free time for the soldiers, but that did not mitigate the circumstances. Skjoldan said the soldiers will go before the Military Auditor Corps and will likely face fines
