New Year's fireworks has become a major problem throughout Sweden in recent days, according to the Swedish news agency TT.
In several neighbourhoods, including in Gothenburg, Norrköping and Ostersund, people have been attacked by gangs who shoot at them with rockets and fireworks.
The mall Nordstan in Gothenburg closed earlier than usual on New Year's Eve after pleas from police, who had received tips that youths were planning to attack the mall with fireworks.
- Nordstan is a public place where the police are responsible. Therefore, we choosed to follow their recommendation, says head of Nordstan, Ulrika Carlsson, to GT.
Police in several parts of the country are called after gangs of immigrant youths have shot missiles against people, pets, livestock and homes.
- They blow up mailboxes, shoot at people and buses to scare, says Christian Galante, head of the police operations center in Västmanland.
- Sadly, we now notice that they often aim the rockets at people, buildings and vehicles, and it is very serious. The number of attacks against rescue personell, ambulances, police and security guards is also rising, says police press spokesman Christer Fuxborg, to Halland Nyheter.
Now it's only about the amount of explosion power really.
