It was uncertain which of the bombings killed the businessman’s children. At least nine bombs were detonated in three churches and at least three hotels in the country.

It was gathered that Povlsen is the largest private landowner in the U.K. Povlsen and his wife Anne own more than 200,000 acres in the Scottish Highlands, making them the second biggest land owners in Scotland after Britain’s royal family.
