Swedish Police Say Situation ‘Completely Unacceptable’ after 550 Per Cent Rise in Grenade Attacks.
Police data shows that in 2014 the Swedish force investigated eight grenade incidents, none of which involved a detonation.
But last year this figure inflated by a massive 550 per cent, as officers saw a total of 52 grenade-related incidents, 27 of which involved detonations.
Interviewed at a secret location, Dame said he and his family are on the run from criminal gangs that now rule the Gothenburg suburbs, telling Norwegian public broadcaster NRK: “It’s like a war zone. We do not know who gets shot. Bullets can hit you anywhere.”
And former soldiers now working in the police bomb disposal unit of Malmö, where 43 per cent of inhabitants have foreign backgrounds, have said the constant grenade attacks in Sweden’s third largest city remind them of the years they served in war-torn regions of Iraq.
