An anti-Islam extremist has again burned copies of the Holy Quran near a mosque and outside the Turkish embassy in Denmark's capital Copenhagen.

Rasmus Paludan, a far-right activist who holds both Danish and Swedish citizenship, has already infuriated the Turkish government by staging a Quran-burning protest in Sweden on January 21.

He said this practice will continue every Friday until Sweden is admitted into NATO.

Turkey has indicated to block Sweden's bid to join NATO.
