Denmark Sunday marked a year since a gunman killed a filmmaker and a Jewish security guard in twin attacks in Copenhagen, honoring the victims under tight security.El-Hussein, seemingly inspired by the attacks on French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, was killed a few hours later in a shootout with police in Copenhagen's immigrant-heavy Norrebro district.El-Hussein, who had been released from prison weeks before the attacks after serving time for a stabbing, pledged allegiance to the ISIS group on his Facebook page on the day of the attack.Four men charged with helping El-Hussein will appear in court next month.Nearly every year in the past decade, authorities have thwarted attacks linked to Denmark's involvement in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and to the Mohammed cartoons published in the Jyllands-Posten newspaper in 2005, Ranstorp said.Some observers say there has been an increase in anti-Muslim rhetoric since the attacks.
