Copenhagen - A Hell's Angels club house burns after being hit by an anti-tank missile yesterday in the latest round of a vicious turf war. A second missile later slammed into the premises of an allied motor-cycle gang.

Police said that the first rocket hit a Hell's Angels clubhouse in Snoldelev, 20 miles south-west of Copenhagen shortly after midnight, causing no injuries but burning down an annexe.

Four hours later a second missile ploughed into a building used by the Angels' allies the Avengers, in Aalborg, 90 miles away. Four gang members sleeping in the building were unhurt by the missile, which did not detonate. Hell's Angels have been battling the rival Bandidos gang in Denmark and the Nordic region for several years but the latest round of violence flared last month with the killing of local Bandidos leader, Uffe Larsen, in an ambush at Copenhagen airport.
