Washington - President Barack Obama has phoned the Danish prime minister to offer his condolences after a gunman attacked a free-speech seminar and a synagogue in Copenhagen.
The White House on Sunday said Obama spoke with Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and offered the United States' support. The White House says the pair agreed to work together to confront those who would challenge free speech or religion.

In Copenhagen, a 22-year-old gunman killed two people and injured five others before being shot dead by police early Sunday. It was the country's worst terror attack in three decades.
Officials said the attacks may have been inspired by last month's attacks by Islamic extremists in Paris that killed 17 people.
