COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) -- The Danish Embassy in Afghanistan's capital has temporarily been relocated to an undisclosed location in Kabul for security reasons.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Klavs A. Holm says "the security level is such that the embassy has to work from another location."
Holm said Friday that the threat against Danish interests remains high. He declined to say whether a newly discovered risk for the embassy in Kabul had led to the relocation.
Last month, Denmark's intelligence service said there is still a considerable threat from Islamic extremists against Danes and Danish interests abroad because of the Feb. 13 reprinting of a cartoon depicting the Prophet Muhammad.
