    Rinkeby

    Last night Dagbladet and Expressen reported that riots broke out in the highly immigrant concentrated Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby. The suburb has earned the nickname of “Little Mogadishu” because of the number of Somalis living there.

    Swedish police had to fire warning shots as hundreds pelted law enforcers with stones and burned cars, after crowds that had gathered in the center of Rinkeby, went on the rampage in what is described as “organised attacks”.

    Strikingly, boys outnumber girls by about five to one in many migrant communities, says Tove Lifvendahl. In June 2010, Rinkeby was the scene of riots and attacks against the local police station. Members of the ’60 Minutes’ news crew were attacked in 2016.

    Sweden is struggling to integrate large numbers of Muslims. According to an AP report, which first ran on January 24, an al-Qaida-linked group is busy recruiting anti-government fighters among Somali youths living in Rinkeby. It is also reportedly the center of the recruiting efforts of al-Shabab, a group with ties to al-Qaida.

    The reports of Islamic State recruitment drives, point out that the drives target not just public places, but happen inside Swedish government programmes. Svenska Dagbladet, exposed how some official schemes had been infiltrated by jihadists.

    In Gothenburg a British boy was killed by a grenade attack, shattering a few illusions about Sweden. Last week’s murder of eight-year-old Yuusuf Warsame from Birmingham, visiting relatives, was particularly shocking. He got caught up in what Swedish police believe is a Somali gang war. Last year, a four-year-old girl was killed by a car bomb outside Gothenburg.

    “Today, the gang environment is — well, I don’t want to exactly call it the Wild West, but something in that direction,” says Amir Rostami, an authority on Swedish organised crime who teaches at Stockholm University.

    A freelancer at the Dagbladet newspaper described the situation last night as serious. “I’ve been in some turmoil, but this is something extra. It looks like a war zone here”, he was quoted as saying .

    Freelance Photographer Janne Åkesson was at the site of the rioting Monday night and early Tuesday. “They threw stones at police and police fired warning shots. I got out when it was at its worst” he told Dagbladet. He added that there were many hooded youths. “It was very chaotic. I have seen much in Rinkeby: they burn cars all the time – unfortunately this was beyond the ordinary.”

    “I do not know how many it concerned, but there will be several people anyway,” Lars Bystrom, spokesperson at the Stockholm police, told Expressen TV.

    According to information in the Swedish media, the emergency services requested reinforcements from Sollentuna and Brännkyrka, but police EMS Units were blocked from entering.
