Danish courts jails 15 bikers for murder attempts

A Danish court has sentenced 15 motorbike gang members to jail for six murder attempts on rival gang members.

The court said Thursday the bikers would spend from three to 15 years in prison, following the country's biggest biker-related trial.

Copenhagen's city court ruled earlier this month that members of the Hells Angels and their support group, AK81, were guilty of a series of shootings in the Danish capital in 2009. No one was killed but one victim had his leg amputated.

The gangs have been feuding over control of criminal markets, including drug trade.
