Sweden Democrats defend Islam comment
A spokesman for the Sweden Democrats has told The Local that "it is not a serious matter" that a senior party member wrote "the religion of peace shows its face" on his Facebook page directly after the fatal Paris shootings.
Björn Söder, who is also a Deputy Speaker in the Swedish parliament, wrote the comment on Facebook after 12 people were killed in the Charlie Hedbo offices in Paris earlier this week.
On Friday morning, the Dagens Nyheter newspaper reported that Swedish MP Veronica Palm of Prime Minister Stefan Löfven's Social Democrat party had reported Söder to the police for racial agitation (hets mot folkgrupp).
