The rioting continued last night in Stockholm. Muslim rioters torched the police station in Rågsved.
The Local reported:
The unrest began shortly after 10pm in Husby, northwestern Stockholm where the riots began on Sunday night. Youths gathered in the town square, some of them masked.
Hagsätra in southern Stockholm came under fire at roughly the same time. A police patrol was attacked, and one officer was taken to hospital with serious injuries to the head.
By 2am, Stockholm’s fire service had attended 75-80 incidents across the city. Much of their work was delayed by youths throwing stones at them, meaning police were left to attend to the stone-throwers to allow the fire fighters access to the fires.
A restaurant went up in flames in Skogås, southern Stockholm. Police labelled the crime as aggravated arson.
In Rågsved, a police station was set on fire, with officers gathering young people in a police bus and escorting them away to other parts of the city.
According to one resident: The problem is people know they can come here and get money for nothing.
One of Europe’s most peaceful capitals, Stockholm, is witnessing its worst outbreak of violence in years. Hundreds of youths, mostly immigrants, ripped through the city’s suburbs in four nights of unrest.
