Police warns immigrants of becoming victims of violence in southern Sweden
The Police in the City of Malmö (South of Sweden) has warned immigrants to be careful and take caution while out alone at nights. Recently several people have been shot, and since all victims, except one has had an immigrant background, the police suspects that the shootings are targeting immigrants. The police has confirmed that eight people have been injured and one died as a result of the attacks which have been compared to the “Laserman” who shot 11 people with an immigrant background between 1991 until 1992. The situation in Malmö is similar to the Laserman shootings since they too occurred at a time when an openly anti-immigration party entered the Swedish parliament. Recently the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats were voted in parliament in the general elections on 19th September. The Minister for Integration and the Minister of Justice have expressed their concern about the escalating violence in Malmö. Several demonstrations against violence and social marginalization took place in Malmö.
