Several police vehicles were vandalized at a demonstration in the Skäggetorp district of Linköping at 3.30pm.
Two vehicles were set on fire.
Rescue service Östra Götaland confirms to TT that this is a police car and a civilian vehicle.
– But the civilian vehicle burned in a different part of Skäggetorp than where it was concerned, says duty officer Pedher Helmer.
The riots were triggered by the permission of right-wing extremist Rasmus Paludan to hold a public meeting with the intention of burning a copy of the Koran.
The great police effort was met by demonstrators who wanted to stop it. A video in Corren’s live report shows how masked people destroy police vehicles with stones.
Around 3.45pm the police cars had left the scene and the atmosphere had calmed down. But it wasn’t clear if Paludan could start demonstrating him.
– We are close to making new decisions. We’ll see if she can pull off her demonstration, police spokesperson Åsa Willsund told TT.
Police classify the incident as a violent riot. No one was injured.
– But several police cars are damaged, says Åsa Willsund.
In connection with the riots, a building was also set on fire, according to the rescue service, which was allowed to extract and extinguish it.
