Roughly 500 members of the Islamist organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT) gathered in Denmark’s capital city of Copenhagen on Friday, calling for Shariah law for European countries, as well as “jihad” to “free” the Palestinian territories. The march, which took place on Friday, appears to have garnered little media attention, as has the shooting which took place in the same location just 24-hours later at a Shia Muslim ceremony.

Around 500 black Islamist-flag waving Sunni HT members began their prayers on Friday outside the Nørrebro train station, which was followed by a march through the local area. A day later, Shia Muslims found themselves attacked at the tail end of their own march in the same part of the city, leading to shots being fired from a gun and a police attempt to control the group.

“Muslim armies, do your duty. We have had enough of failure,” the HT crowds chanted on Friday afternoon, according to journalist Marie Jensen who was present at the scene.

TV2 reports that men and women were segregated at the event, and “infants” were also there, helping to wave the black flag of Hizb ut-Tahrir, which is similar, though not identical, to the black flag of ISIS.

And just 24-hours later, there were clashes at a memorial march for Imam Hussein, a descendent of prophet Muhammed whose life is mourned every year by Shia Muslims around the world.
