Post Riots in Rinkeby Sweden

A day after Swedish politicians who were outraged by US President Donald Trump’s statement boasted Sweden had no issues with migrants, a large group of unidentified persons ran riots in Rinkeby district of Stockholm, Sweden, setting cars on fire and looting the local stores, the city’s police said in a statement.

Local television said the riot started after police arrested a wanted person at the metro station in Rinkeby at around 8pm.

“The unrest began at 22:20 local time [21.20 GMT], 7-8 vehicles were set on fire in the district during the evening… Unfortunately, several cases of shops looting took place in the district,” the police said on Monday.

According to the statement, the rioters were throwing stones at the police, injuring one of the officers, while two more people suffered from beatings. Local media reported multiple warning shots and tear gas were used.

The number of rioters has not been defined yet. According to the local television, there were between 50 and 100 rioters who were migrants. Emergency services said over a dozen cars were burned.

The police managed to restore the order in a couple of hours.

Rinkeby is one of the districts with the highest number of immigrants in Stockholm.

A few shops in the area were looted during the riots and one of the shop owners, who received the alarm alert on his phone went to the site and was beaten, SVT TV reported.

My statement as to what's happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.
