On 28 September 2012, an explosion damaged the front door of the Jewish community Centre in Malmö. The building was not damaged and no one was reportedly injured according to the police, but witness statements said that the blasts could be heard a few blocks away. According to Malmö police, both of the suspects are 18 years old, but it is believed that more people were involved in carrying out the attack. Previously during the year, Malmö major Reepalu came under fire for comments in which he claimed that the far right Sweden Democrats had “infiltrated” the Jewish community in Malmö. The comments were followed by a visit to Malmö from US President Barack Obama’s Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat anti-Semitism, Hannah Rosenthal, who said there is “no excuse” for using anti-Semitist language.
