Denmark-Germany ferries halted briefly over 'threat'


Stockholm (AFP)

Danish police said Wednesday that ferry services had resumed between Denmark and Germany after being briefly suspended because of an unspecified "threat".

"Police have checked out the first ferries and after inspection they have been authorised to start again," police said in a statement.

Ferry operator Scandlines had said on its website earlier that services had been halted because of "a threat", without giving further details.
