How would they supposedly harm Denmark in a terrorist attack

Several of the accused, in terrorsagen would supposedly use guns and bombs for an attack in Denmark or abroad.

the Three of them were in the Copenhagen city Court charged with having intended to produce one or more specific bombs, which is known as 'Satan's mother'.

It is the terrorists ' favourite bomb and has a long and bloody history.

"It is probably the easiest explosive substance, as you can make," says Peter Hald.

He is the ph.d. in chemistry at Aarhus University and a reserve officer from the corps of royal engineers.

The home-made bombs consisting of explosive TATP and does not require a laboratory to manufacture.

It is a bomb, as the terrorists all over the world have used, because several of the ingredients are so common that they can be bought in diy stores and supermarkets.

It was also the same bombetype, as Kundby-the girl would produce, and as the bomber from the Hotel Jørgensen, Lors Doukaiev, was presumably in possession of. Also was 'Satan's mother' the core of the terrorist attacks in Brussels and Paris.

The simple bombs have the same sprængkraft as dynamite, but is at the same time extremely unstable and dangerous.

"It is not only dangerous for those who have made it, but also for those, who live nearby, if they for example have done it in residential real estate," says Peter Hald.

Several of the arrests and the searches Wednesday were conducted in the apartment buildings around the country, but the public don't know yet, where the components for the bomb should have been.

Bombs with TATP is on the one hand relatively easy to fix, but on the other hand, so unstable, that chemists and the military do not want to touch it.

"It is too sensitive for that you can work safely with it," says Peter Hald.

"It just has to have a blow, a flame or a spark, and then detonate it."

for The same reason, he believes that it is an explosive, which is popular with suicide bombers. For being the hit of a shot at bombevesten, then it explodes it all with the same.

It makes TATP bombs – or 'Satan's mother' – all the more dangerous to work with for inexperienced persons.

Have opposite tried to handle and mix the three necessary ingredients for a bomb before, so is the likelihood of success greater. According to Peter Hald in particular syrienskrigere dangerous.

"they have actually tried it in practice," said Peter Hald.

Pistols with silencers

Two women and six men were Thursday charged with attempts at terrorism during a grundlovsforhør in Copenhagen. Five of them to have tried to finance and buy guns, silencers and ammunition.

the Weapons should, according to the charges, to be used for one or more acts of terrorism in Denmark or abroad. The police and PET have not yet lifted the veil, where those arrested were planning to strike.

the Former operative head of PET, Hans Jørgen Bonnichsen believes from his experience that the choice of weapons points to a quite specific attack.

"It is my immediate thought, that you wanted to liquidate a person," is his assessment.

"With mufflers would an attack in the first place go unnoticed, and so it is time for the perpetrators to get away."

in addition to the eight persons, which was produced in Copenhagen city Court, was a ninth person made in Odense. His charges and relation to terrorsagen is, however, still unknown. Further, 13 of the persons released after the comprehensive anti-terrorism action. However, they are still charged in the case.
