Toilet bomber fails in Denmark

A man has been detained in what's being called a suicide bombing attempt. Injured in the blast, the suspect is believed to have tried to ignite the bomb in the Jorgensens Hotel in Copenhagen, with the toilet being the scene of the (alleged) crime. He sustained injuries on his face and arms. Police picked him up in a park, where he's said to have run following the blast.

The low-cost hotel is on Israel's Square, in the center of Copenhagen. It's also located close to Norreport Station.

Little is known about the man's identity, though he is said to have carried papers from two countries. Also, his intended target hasn't been established conclusively yet, but the newspaper Ekstra Bladet, is believed to have been a possibility.
