Copenhagen: UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned Sunday the deadly attacks in Copenhagen and called on society to stand up for tolerance and free expression.

Ban "strongly condemns the shooting attacks ... The United Nations stands in solidarity with the people and authorities of Denmark," said Stephane Dujarric, a spokesman for the United Nations` top official.

"There is no justification for attacks against civilians and (Ban) reiterates the need to stand strong for freedom of expression and tolerance," Dujarric said in a statement.

"There is no space for anti-semitism or any form of racial, ethnic or religious discrimination in today`s world."

Saturday`s twin attacks on a cultural center and synagogue in Copenhagen left two people dead and five police officers wounded before the assailant himself was gunned down.
