Denmark is to impose temporary border controls at the Swedish border next month, after Swedes were suspected of being behind a number of serious attacks this year in the Danish capital Copenhagen, the justice minister said on Thursday.
Sweden, which itself has had controls at the border since 2015 to try to stop asylum seekers from entering the country, welcomed the move.
Denmark is connected to Sweden via the Oresund bridge across a 16 km (10-mile) strait. Thousands of citizens commute across the border daily.
Two Swedish nationals are currently in custody in Denmark suspected of involvement in an explosion outside the Danish Tax Agency in August. Five Swedes are also in custody in Denmark on suspicion of carrying out two killings in a Copenhagen suburb in June. They have yet to be formally charged.
