Nafeza 2 world - A 39-year-old Polish man, who was arrested, appeared at the Court of Frederiksberg for a preliminary hearing on Saturday.

He was charged with violence against a person in public service, and denies guilt, local media reported.

In her interview with DR on Tuesday, Ms Frederiksen said there was no place for any form of violence in Danish society.

The incident, which took place two days before Danes headed to the polls for European elections, was strongly condemned by world leaders, with EU chief Charles Michel saying he was "outraged".

Ms Frederiksen, 46, became prime minister in 2019 after taking over as leader of the centre-left Social Democrats four years earlier, making her the youngest prime minister in Danish history.

During the same interview with the Danish broadcaster, the prime minister was asked about the results of the European Parliament elections, where her Social Democrats were beaten by Green-Left party SF which polled more than 17% of the vote.

Ms Frederiksen, who had to halt campaigning over the weekend to recover after the assault, said she was "really sorry" about the result, but emphasised that she was listening to the electorate.
