Copenhagen police with the help of colleagues from other police districts are searching a total of eight addresses in Nørrebro, Inner City and Amager, police said in a statement.
Police with body armor has gone into several apartments, says witnesses.
The searches are done as part of the continuing investigation of the terrorist attack in Copenhagen in February when 22-year-old Omar El-Hussein killed two people before he was killed by police.
Police said that the raids are because they are still investigating to clarify Omar El-Hussein's movements on the day.
- We are looking for further clues in the case, but we can not, for the sake of the continued investigation, currently give any further comment in this case, said senior police inspector Jørgen Skov, at the Copenhagen Police.
Police this morning were, among other places, present in Mjølnerparken, where Omar El-Hussein came from. According to eyewitnesses the number of police at the site is massive.
- There are both police buses and civilian police cars at Mjølnerparken, says an eyewitness to Ekstra Bladet.
