Arson attack on Swedish mosque injures five

Smoke rises from the interior of a destroyed mosque as firefighters search the remains of the building after an arson attack on December 25, 2014 in EskilstunaAn arsonist set fire to a mosque in central Sweden on Thursday injuring five people, police said, as the country grapples with a political crisis caused by the rise of the extreme right. “Somebody threw an object through a closed window and afterwards a fire started inside,” police spokesman Lars Franzell told AFP. Refugee-friendly Sweden woke up to the reality of a new political landscape in early December when the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats brought down the government by refusing to back its budget proposal in parliament. The mosque is located on the ground floor of a building in the city of Eskilstuna, some 90 kilometres (55 miles) west of Stockholm.
