Machine guns to help protect synagogues
Police officers guarding Jewish buildings in Sweden should carry automatic rifles, according to new directives issued after two deadly shootings in Copenhagen over the weekend.
Officers will also be equipped with bullet proof vests and protective helmets, according to Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet.
"This is in line with a previous decision that security equipment of police officers stationed at Jewish activity centres should be strengthened," Jessica Krasser Fremnell, press officer at the Swedish Police's operative department, told the newspaper.
