The man killed by the police was reported to have been wielding a knife after locking himself in an apartment building in the Husby suburb of Stockholm. It remains unclear why lethal force was used. Police have refused to give the nationality of the victim. The Husby suburb of 11,000 people has been the centre of the riots. Of that number an estimated 80% are first- and second-generation immigrants. The Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt disapproves the violence and asks the inhabitants of the area to remain calm.
