Firebombs thrown at police in Stockholm riot
by Daniel Dickson
Police were attacked with firebombs and rocks in a poor suburb in Sweden's capital late on Saturday, leading to the arrest of eleven young people for rioting and arson.
The events in Ragsved in southern Stockholm came after week-long riots in Husby on the other side of the capital in May last year when hundreds of cars were burnt as police battled immigrant youths after a Portuguese man was shot dead by police.
A police spokesman said it was too early to say who the perpetrators were this time, but that four of the eleven arrested were younger than 18.
