Sixth Night of Violence in Sweden

FT reports:

Rioting spread to several Swedish towns on Friday night as police stepped up arrests during a sixth night of unrest and far-right vigilantes chased non-whites in southern Stockholm.

In Linköping, central southern Sweden, police responded to 120 incidents as cars, caravans and two schools were set alight. At one point a blazing truck was rolled into a building, which caught fire.

"We see the night's events as an offshoot of what has happened in the Stockholm area in recent days," local police told Swedish television.
