Riots rock Stockholm suburb
Up to 100 youths rioted for two straight days in a heavily immigrant suburb of Stockholm, throwing bricks, setting fires and attacking the local police station, police said on Wednesday.
"They set fire to a school building... They tried to set fire to the police station and other buildings and vehicles, but mostly they have thrown rocks and bricks at police and fire fighters," police spokesperson Mats Eriksson said.
He said no one had so far been injured in the riots in the Rinkeby suburb that began late on Monday. Rinkeby is known for having one of the highest concentrations of first- and second-generation immigrants in Sweden.
