Denmark charges 14 for sharing graphic murder video


Fourteen people have been charged in Denmark for sharing a video on social media showing the murder of Scandinavian tourists in Morocco.

Urging the public to delete the video, the police said: "it is not only punishable, it is also offensive to both victims and relatives".

According to the reports, the suspects range between the ages of 13 to 69.

Danish public prosecutor Kirsten Dyrman warned that sharing the video may be a punishable offence.

The murder of Louisa Vesterager Jespersen and Maren Ueland near the village of Imlil in the Atlas Mountains last December had left many in Denmark and Norway shocked.
