Youths burn 100 cars in north Stockholm riots
Youths rioted in northern Stockholm on Sunday night, setting fire to cars and throwing rocks at police, in what is believed to be a protest against the fatal police shooting of a machete-wielding man in the suburb last week.
"At 10pm we sent out staff to an address in Husby," explained Lars Byström of the Stockholm police to the Dagens Nyheter newspaper.
"My colleagues were met by young people who threw stones at them. It continued with a couple of violent riots and extensive damage."
