Swedish Police Pelted With Rocks While Arresting Terror Suspect In Migrant “No-Go Zone”
On Friday, Sweden became the latest European target of terrorism after a man plowed a hijacked beer delivery truck into a crowd in central Stockholm, killing five people and wounding more than a dozen (we covered the situation here: “Swedish Police In Manhunt For Terrorist Truck Driver Who Killed Five“).
And while such attacks typically tend to unify populations in the common goal of hunting down, capturing and punishing the responsible assailants, that sense of camaraderie apparently doesn’t apply in Sweden’s so-called “no-go zones” which have become home to 1,000’s of migrants flooding into Europe from Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East and Africa.
According to the Daily Mail, rather than help police arresting a suspect in Friday’s horrendous attack, migrant residents of the suburb of Rinkeby apparently decided instead to pelt the arresting officers with rocks.
Police officers responding to the Stockholm terror atrocity were attacked by a gang of youths who pelted them with stones last night, Swedish policemen have said.
The attack happened last night near Rinkeby, part of the ‘immigrant no-go zone’ that gained notoriety when President Trump referred to it in a controversial speech in February.
It is thought that the officers were taking part in an operation to arrest a 17-year-old and his mother at an address linked to the 39-year-old prime suspect.
Meanwhile the attack was confirmed by Abdallah Ahmed via social media:
‘During the night my colleagues were exposed to stone throwing in [the suburb of] Tensta, in the middle of an ongoing terror operation.
‘Some people will never learn,’ Abdallah Ahmed, a police officer, said in a social media post.
‘To terror I want to say one thing, in pure Swedish: go to hell. My thoughts go to those affected in every way.’
Pool sent out the following tweets about the incident saying that around 2:30 in the afternoon “several men started masking up” and following his crew which prompted the police to escort his team out of town with the warning that “it would get really dangerous if we don’t leave Rinkeby.”
