Denmark's Jewish community has asked for a police presence outside the Copenhagen synagogue during services and when students arrive and leave the city's Jewish school following the terror attacks in Paris.

Community chairman Dan Rosenberg Asmussen says he made the request Wednesday to Justice Minister Mette Frederiksen who stopped short of making any promises to the country's 7,000-strong Jewish community. She said Denmark's security agency would make reconsider security at Jewish institutions.

Frederiksen said the attacks in Paris made "us painfully aware of the importance that our Jewish fellow citizens can feel safe."
