Strange event in Copenhagen yesterday

Danish police have detained a man injured by a small blast at a Copenhagen hotel amid media reports he was a would-be suicide bomber.

He suffered slight injuries on his face and arms and was arrested in a park where he is believed to have fled after the blast at the Jorgensens Hotel.

Some rather bizarre details given on the local news here, but it seems that he may have been a foreigner of some description (either Dutch, Belgian, or Luxembourger) and of North African extraction. Apart from the bomb it seems that he also had a pistol.
More bizarre details released today.

It seems that his target was Jylland Posten's (the newspaper who published the Mohammed cartoons) office in Århus. Quite impressive that he blew up a toilet in Copenhagen instead. At least he got the correct country!

More details released now. It seems that he is a Chechen Muslim called Lors Doukaiev who was living in Belgium who has a serious bee in his bonnet about the Mohammed cartoons. He was using TATP which the local police think he may have manufactured whilst in Denmark.

It seems he was a bit of a boxer too. Here is an old video of him from Belgian TV:
