Swedish police claimed they fired warning bullets amid a disturbance in an eastern city to disperse protestors unhappy about a Danish anti-Islam group’s activities in Sweden. During the fights, three people were slightly injured.
A mob of roughly 150 protesters attacked cops and police vehicles with stones and set fire to cars. Police claimed they fired warning shots in response, adding that three persons appear to have been struck by misfires and were taken to the hospital in Norrkoping.
Since Thursday, riots have erupted in Sweden as a result of meetings and planned Quran burnings held by Danish far-right politician Rasmus Paludan in numerous Swedish cities and towns. Paludan and his Stram Kurs party were supposed to have a rally in Norrkoping on Sunday, but he never turned up, according to Swedish media.
