A black Swedish-registered auto with "possibly three people onboard" was being sought in connection with "serious criminality", the Copenhagen police said Friday.

Copenhagen airport was still open, according to its website. "As previously stated, it is believed that it was involved in serious criminality", inspector Jørgen Bergen Skov said at a press briefing.
