Odense: Taxi drivers afraid of Somali gang

Odense: Taxi drivers afraid of Somali gang

Danish newspaper Fyens Stiftstidende reports that 200 taxi drivers at Odense Taxa are so afraid of driving in Vollsmose (Odense, Denmark) that they will no longer drive in the area, and will drop passengers at the outskirts of the neighborhood.

The reaction comes after several serious attacks on drivers, which twice were threatened over the weekend with knives to give over their earnings.

In both cases the attackers were described as a group of young, Somali men, and according to the Fyns police it's possible it's the same group.  Also last Monday a driver was also attacked by a group of Somali youth while driving to Vollsmose.
