Some thirty asylum seekers has made temperature in social media in Sweden on Monday.
Then it was known that since Sunday night the refugees had refused to get off two buses in Lima, where the Swedish Migration Board had intended to place them, writes Aftonbladet.
Lima is a village in Malung-Sälen municipality in Dalarna.
The Swedish Migration Board arrived at the scene at 20 o'clock last night.
- We explained that this is the accommodation we have to offer, that we have no more places and that there is hot food, beds and cabins to all. But despite that, most chose to remain on the buses.
- They think it is the middle of the forest and that it is uncomfortable with so much forest, says Matilda Niang in the Swedish Migration Board to Aftonbladet.
They wanted to stay more central.
The refugees came by bus from more central Orsa and Sweden's capital Stockholm.
The Swedish authorities do not intend to comply with the desire to be located in more central areas.
- If they want us to help, this is what we can offer. Otherwise they will have to arrange for their own housing, says Matilda Niang.
This is not the first time this has happened, and there have been several similar incidents. Perhaps the most famous one is when 30 Syrians who immigrated illegally to Sweden to seek asylum and who occupied a bus outside Östersund, came with this statement: "We are Arabs. We can't stay where it is this kind of weather.", as they refused to be placed in snowy Östersund.
The incident has again upset people in Sweden, as it is a country with snow and forests, and refugees should just be grateful to get shelter in a peaceful country, as they claim to have fled war.
