Husby center closes in despair
SWEDEN -- Shop owners in the center of the immigrant dense suburb of Husby in Stockholm have decided to close their shops in protest of the crime in the area. Today they met to determine how long to keep the center closed, reports Mitt I Stockholm.

- We want the police and politicians to take back the center and protect their citizens and businesses, says Salam Kurda, who is one of the affected shopkeepers.

Early on Monday, Salam Kurda's grocery store was subjected to a burglary when a van ran straight into the facade. The night after it happened again with a neighboring store.

- We are constantly exposed to burglary. The answer we receive from the police is that they do not have the resources and it is not their top priority. We feel abandoned. We can not continue to operate a business in the area. It's incredibly bad, says Salam Kurda.

He has been active for 30 years in the area and is chairman of the Husby business association, with about 25 entrepreneurs included.

According to Salam Kurda, even the medical center, the dentist and the pharmacy located in the center of Husby will stay closed.

- We have discussed with the police and property owners over a longer period. But we must do something now. We can not wait until someone might die, says Salam Kurda.

Husby is the suburb that erupted in riots in 2013, and has since seen several incidents of news agencies being chased away and stoned, much like in Somalia.
