Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. BBC News - Man held after 'suicide' blast at hotel in Copenhagen

    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.
  2. 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!

  3. 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:
