Copenhagen: Two men were charged on Monday with helping the gunman who killed two people in twin attacks in Copenhagen at the weekend, a lawyer said.

"They are not charged with terrorism but they are charged with having helped the perpetrator get rid of a weapon and giving him a hiding place," the lawyer of one of the men, Michael Juul Eriksen, told AFP.

The two suspects, who appeared in court on Monday following their arrest on Sunday, cannot be named for legal reasons.

There was no immediate confirmation of the charges from police.
