An explosion damaged a police station in Copenhagen on Saturday, in the second explosion that hit the Danish capital in four days.

No one was injured in the explosion outside a Norrebro station just outside the city center, police said on Twitter.

On Tuesday, a person was slightly injured in an explosion outside the Danish Revenue Agency office, in what the police said was a deliberate attack.

The story continues under the announcement

The police told Reuters it was too early to tell if the two explosions were connected, but could not immediately comment further.

The police were looking for a man who was escaping from the explosion scene, said Ekstra Bladet.

Serious attacks or violence are rare in the small Nordic country of 5.7 million people who boast of a reputation for security and social tolerance.
