A Danish bomb squad shot to pieces a teddy bear left on the doorstep of a Jehovah’s Witness hall on Thursday evening with a note saying it contained a bomb, police said.

A group of Jehovah’s Witnesses on their way into a meeting had found the cuddly toy with a note reading: “If you touch me I will blow up. I am a bomb.”

Police told the 80 Jehovah’s Witnesses to leave the hall in a quiet suburb 10 km northwest of Copenhagen, and closed off the surrounding area to traffic.

A bomb-disposal robot then approached the bear.

“The bomb unit fired two shots at the teddy bear and there was no reaction. There is nothing that indicates that there actually was a bomb,” a Copenhagen police duty officer said.

Police said they were trying to establish who was responsible for the hoax.
