Denmark: Jewish radio station taking break for security reasons

Via JTA:
A Jewish radio station based in Copenhagen canceled its daily broadcast for security reasons following the deadly synagogue shooting in the Danish capital.

The Danish Security and Intelligence Service, whose acronym in Danish is PET, shut down Monday after being told that broadcasting from its basement studio in the Norrebo neighborhood of Copenhagen was too dangerous, Radio Shalom host Abraham Kopenhagen told the Danish-language newspaper DR Nyheder, according to Tuesday’s Copenhagen Post. 
Kopenhagen said that PET offered to protect the station while it was broadcasting, but Radio Shalom rejected the offer.

“We must do as instructed, but we will not have police standing outside the door,” he said. “We would rather close down until it is quiet again. I do not know how long that will take.”
