The Danish terror suspect named in the Copenhagen shooting had sworn allegiance to Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a Facebook post just before he opened fire on Saturday, according to reports.
According to the post made in what has been widely understood to be his Facebook account, he had pledged "allegiance to Abu Bakr in full obedience in the good and bad things"
"And I won't dispute with him unless it is an outrageous disbelief," he wrote as noted by CNN.
The suspect recognised as Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein allegedly opened fire at a free speech forum in the Danish capital on Saturday. He also shot several people outside a synagogue and fired at the police, who ultimately killed him in the shootout.
Swedish artist Lars Vilks -- who attended Saturday's forum and had been controversial for his portrayals of the Prophet -- told the American news channel that he was likely target of the attack. Although he escaped from the scene unharmed, he has since been in hiding.
The two-time survivor of previous attacks had been in Al Qaeda hit list especially after his 2007 cartoon, which depicted the prophet with the body of a dog – an animal many conservative Muslims find unclean.
"There is no forgiveness. You are pointed out, and you are bound to die in these peoples' eyes, and there's no way out," Vilks said.
Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt led the nation's mourning on Monday in an event that was attended by over 40,000 people, reports Al-Arabiya.
"An attack on Denmark's Jews is an attack on everyone," she said in her remarks. "the Jewish community is an important part of Denmark. We will stand together and continue the everyday life we know. We stand together as Danes."
