SWEDEN - BURNING MOSQUE

Swedish protesters denounce mosque arson attack

People leave flowers and messages of good will at the scene of a destroyed mosque the day after an arson attack on December 26, 2014, in Eskilstuna, SwedenSeveral hundred marchers turned out in Sweden on Friday to denounce an arson attack on a mosque that injured five people Thursday, as the traditionally tolerant country confronts the rising influence of the extreme right. A firebomb was thrown through a closed window of the mosque in the central city of Eskilstuna on Thursday, injuring five of the nearly 70 worshippers inside — two of whom remained hospitalised Friday. Answering calls to denounce the attack by the “Together for Eskilstuna” Facebook page, a large group of people converged on the damaged mosque to show their support. No suspects had been arrested Friday afternoon in the case police have opened for aggravated criminal arson, which has been joined by Sweden’s intelligence service, Sapo.
