COPENHAGEN, Denmark — A defense lawyer for one of two men suspected of assisting the gunman behind two shooting attacks in Copenhagen says both have been jailed for 10 days.

Anders Rohde says that prosecutors had asked a judge to place them in four weeks of solitary confinement and that the relatively short period of detention suggests the case against the men is “thin.”

Rohde was speaking to reporters after a four-hour custody hearing held behind closed doors. His colleague earlier said the men denied accusations that they helped the gunman evade authorities and get rid of a weapon.
