436 丹麦群众对美国遭受恐怖袭击事件表示悲痛和哀悼

Danes Express Grief and Condolences

Around the globe, initial reactions of horror and 1)disbelief are giving way to expressions of 2)sympathy for the victims - som1e 3)spontaneous, others organized. The Danish capital, Copenhagen, is holding a number of candle light 4)vigils and memorial services.
Within hours of the attacks in the United States, hundreds of people gathered at Copenhagen's Kristianskirken for a hastily arranged memorial. Among the five priests speaking at the service was Chad Rimmer, an American clergyman visiting Denmark.
"It makes my heart a little bit lighter1 to be here with you all this evening, and realize that even being such a long way from home at such a shocking time for all of us, I can realize that wherever you are in the world, Christians2 can gather in support of each other with a bond that goes beyond whatever passport you can carry," said Chad Rimmer.
In addition to the main memorial, half a dozen other Copenhagen churches opened all night for those wanting to pray and express their 5)grief and 6)condolences.
Danish Prime Minister Poul Nyrup Rasmussen went on nationwide television, saying he regards the attacks not just as an 7)assault on American democracy, but on the entire free world. He pledged that counter measures carried out by the United States and its allies would have to be precise and measured. He said "The U.S. counterattack, and our joint3 counter-attack, will have to be efficient and carefully targeted, and then we will be in 8)solidarity with that."
Outside the American embassy in central Copenhagen, a mountain of flowers 9)piled up around the iron security fence. A host of dignitaries led by Denmark's foreign minister dropped by to pay their respects, and a crowd of several hundred people stood in the 10)chilly evening, many with tears streaming down their faces.
Several people said they were 11)convinced the attacks were a response to U.S. policy in the Middle East. Twenty-three-year old Peter Vingaard said such terrorism would surely unleash4 a wave of sympathy for the United States and damage the cause of the 12)perpetrators.
"In Denmark there's a lot of 13)argumentation going on about pro-the United States and contra the United States," said Mr. Vingaard. "Is the role of the United States justified5? In the world what they're doing around. But either way, if the United States makes mistakes around the world, nothing justifies6 what happened today. It's so sad."
Another who came to pay his respects, 30-year-old Philip Juhl, said he was there to express his outrage7. "We're all involved in this somehow, I think, because it's an attack on the western world, the 14)civilized world, and democracy," he said.
Security at the American embassy was tightened8 within minutes after the attacks in New York and Washington. Extra police were also stationed outside the Israeli embassy.
In a country with so much 15)interaction with the United States, the Danish foreign ministry9 opened a hotline for people concerned about relatives in New York and Washington. And Americans living here reported their phones were ringing 16)constantly, mostly friends and relatives calling to express their condolences.
