This is fine.
All nations encounter a few bumps on the road to multicultural harmony.
Sweden was rocked Wednesday night by a series of explosions, a drive-by shooting, a kidnapping, and a fire at an asylum residence, according to local media and police.
In Skåne County, three detonations over the span of four hours kept the ‘bomb squad’ very busy as a blast at an apartment building in Landskrona was followed by two more in nearby Malmö – one at a grocery store and another at an industrial garage.
Pictures taken at the grocery site show extensive damage to storefront.
In Värnamo, an exchange of gunfire between vehicles led to the arrest of five suspects under suspicion of attempted murder.
In Töreboda, police are investigating arson after a fire broke out at an asylum residence.
Some 40 residents were evacuated from the building and taken to a nearby parish home, according to a police report.
In Falun, a 15-year-old boy was kidnapped by a man with a baseball bat who demanded a ransom from the boy’s parents under threat of physical harm.
“The search led police to an address where they suspected the boy was,” Expressen reports. “After work by the police negotiator, a man in his 30s was arrested by prosecutors.”
