Macron condemns attack on Danish PM as ‘Unacceptable’

French President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday denounced the “unacceptable” attack on Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, who was hit by a man in Copenhagen.

“The attack on the Danish Prime Minister is unacceptable,” Macron posted on X (formerly Twitter). “I strongly condemn this act and wish Mette Frederiksen a speedy recovery,” he added.

Frederiksen was “hit” on Friday by a man in a Copenhagen square, her office said. EU chiefs quickly condemned the attack. Police said the suspect would appear in court on Saturday.
