5 held for alleged threats against Danish lawmaker

Danish police say five people have been arrested on suspicion of making death threats against a nationalist leader known for her outspoken opposition to immigration, particularly from Muslim countries.
Police spokesman Joergen Aabye says the men are being held on preliminary charges of threatening Pia Kjaersgaard, who heads the anti-immigration Danish People's Party.
Aaby says the suspects were arrested Thursday in cooperation with Denmark's PET intelligence agency. He declined to give details.
The party says Kjaersgaard is safe but "shaken" by the arrests. The 62-year-old politician was abroad on holiday and was expected to return to Copenhagen later Thursday.
