Stockholm- Disgusting excesses of violence are shaking Sweden!
Police cars burned in Linköping and Örebro on Thursday and Good Friday. A dozen police officers were injured, some seriously, by mostly young men. They apparently felt provoked by the planned Islamophobic and xenophobic demonstrations and the fact that they were approved.

The anti-Islamic and anti-immigrant group “Stram Kurs” (in German: hard course) had called for demonstrations and announced that they wanted to burn a Koran. Many Swedes were horrified and staged counter-protests.
Although the action ultimately did not take place, violent violence and rioting ensued. Already on Thursday, hooded people in Linköping attacked the police and broke the windows of emergency vehicles. The assailants reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” and two cars burned. Three injured police officers had to be taken to hospital. The “Stram Kurs” demonstration should have taken place in a neighborhood where a particularly large number of Muslims live.
