Councils use millions on excessive stadiums

Demands from the Danish football association DBU led three councils to grant 92 million kroner to football stadiums that will be impossible to fill. The three football clubs - Silkeborg IF, Sønderjyske and Lyngby BK - have all been forced to renovate or build new stadiums in order to accommodate DBU’s assertion that top-league teams must have an audience capacity of at least 10,000 to be granted a Superliga license. The three clubs rarely see over 5,000 fans at their stadiums. – Politiken

Assassination attempt out of the blue

Yesterday’s attempt by an unknown assailant to assassinate Islam critic, Lars Hedegaard, came as a surprise to police authorities as well as the domestic intelligence agency PET. Authorities believe that the attempt on Hedegaard’s life could be politically motivated, but they are also working other angles such as jealousy.  The police are still looking for the man who they say spoke fluent Danish, and although Hedegaard described the man as possibly being "Southern or Arabic", police believe he may have been wearing a wig. – Jyllands-Posten

Bank rescue may have broken EU law

When FIH Erhvervsbank was saved by the government via the May 2012 bank package, Bankpakke 5, politicians may have broken EU laws pertaining to state support, according to a new report. The report, written by the EU Commission, has questioned the legality of the manoeuvre, in which FIH Erhvervsbank moved languishing real estate loans from the bank to the state-owned financial stability securers, Finansiel Stabilite. The EU Commission has decided to further investigate the case. - Berlingske

More porn in school, please

Students in school should be more informed about the porn industry as part of the sex-education, a sex expert has suggested. Jenna Christensen, a sexologist and nurse, argued that young teenagers often obtain all their knowledge about sex from porn films, which are not accurate reflections of how sexual relationships occur in the real world. The student association Danske Skoleelever welcomed Christensen's suggestion for porn to be added to the curriculum. - MetroXpress
