STOCKHOLM (AP) — Danish police say they have evacuated an airport, public square and shopping center due to a string of bomb threats.

Police in Roskilde, just west of the Danish capital, Copenhagen, said they evacuated the local airport and a square in the city. They didn’t give any details about the threats Monday but said no one was injured.

Meanwhile, police in Slagelse, about 35 miles southwest of Copenhagen, said they had evacuated a shopping center there after a similar threat. Police urged people to stay away from the downtown area near the shopping center.
