Denmark will set up temporary border controls at the Swedish border starting next month, the country’s justice minister Nick Haekkerup said on Thursday.

The move comes after two Swedes were charged with being involved in an explosion outside the Danish Tax Agency in August.

Denmark is connected to Sweden via the Oresund bridge across a 16 kilometre. Both countries are members of the European Union.
