MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Leaflets found plastered across the Danish capital of Copenhagen threatened the Nordic country with new terrorist attacks, local media reported Saturday.

"Soon Denmark will be hit by the terrorist attacks that will make what happened on February 14 look like pranks," Denmark's TV2 quoted the leaflet as saying.

The attacks cited in the leaflet claimed the lives of two civilians at a free speech debate and a synagogue.

'Suspcious Letter' Found at Scene of Copenhagen Shooting
Law enforcement officials launched an investigation into the appearance of the leaflets. The broadcast network goes on to say police got word of their appearance earlier in the week, moving quickly to remove them from the streets.

"Some notes have been found hanging in Copenhagen. I cannot comment on the content, but we are investigating it," Carsten Reenberg, Copenhagen Police security chief, was quoted as saying.

The suspected gunman that carried out the two terrorist attacks on February 14, Omar El-Hussein, was killed by police the following day. Local authorities say the perpetrator had a criminal record and was released from prison two weeks ahead of the attack. Although he was not part of a terror cell, El-Hussein was believed to be inspired by a string of deadly terrorist attacks that took place in Paris, France a month prior.
