Copenhagen - Police in Denmark arrested a suspected possible suicide bomber Friday following a small explosion at a hotel in central Copenhagen, media reports said.
Danish daily Extra Bladet showed on its website a photo of the suspect, who had reportedly attempted to blow himself up. Police did not immediately confirm the report.
No one was injured in the explosion at the Jorgensen Hotel. Police handcuffed the man after he was seen running away from the hotel and into the nearby Orstedsparken park. The park was evacuated and the surrounding streets were cordoned off as explosive experts were called in.
There have been fears of a possible attack by radical Islamist in Denmark ever since the 2005 publication by the Danish media of controversial cartoons depicting the Islamic prophet Muhammed.
Friday's bomb scare took place a day before the anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks in the United States.

SNIPPET: “Police in Copenhagen have arrested a man in connection with what appears to be a botched bombing.
The man was apprehended shortly after a minor explosion at about 1:30pm in the bathroom of Hotel Jørgensen, located near Nørreport Station, the capitals busiest commuter railway hub.
Police arrested the man, reportedly carrying identification from two foreign countries, in nearby H.C. Ørsted Park with a bag attached to his waist.”
SNIPPET: “Security, however, was tightened at the ferry crossing between Helsingør, Denmark and Helsingborg, Sweden, some 30km north of Copenhagen. According to B.T. newspaper, police nationwide were asked to be aware of cars from France, the Netherlands or Belgium.
Forensics teams have been on the scene throughout the day, but a spokesman for the police said the hotel had yet to be searched for evidence due to concerns that the suspect may have planted additional bombs.”
Photo of the suspect in handcuffs:
