A mob of black-clad masked men went on a rampage in and around Stockholm’s main train station last night beating up refugees and anyone who did not look like they were ethnically Swedish
Before the attack, the group of 200 people handed out xenophobic leaflets with the message ‘Enough now’
Swedish media reported that the thugs, allegedly linked to Sweden’s football hooligan scene, were targeting unaccompanied minors with a ‘foreign’ background
he mob, wearing all-black balaclavas and armbands, ‘gathered with the purpose of attacking refugee children’ Stockholm police spokesman Towe Hagg said.
‘Police are now looking into the leaflets that were handed out by masked people before the attack’.
Authorities confirmed that at least 40-50 people went on a rampage at 9pm on Friday night attacking migrants.
Witnesses told Aftonbladet newspaper that they saw a gang of black-clad thugs attacking refugees at the station.
‘I saw maybe three people who were beaten. That was no football brawl or something similar. They targeted migrants. I was quite scared and ran away,’ a witness said.
The leaflet handed out before the attack refers to the alleged murder of Alexandra Mehzer, a 22-year-old aid worker knifed to death at the child centre where she worked in Molndal, Sweden.
A Somali-born 15-year-old migrant has been accused of killing her during a fight between two asylum-seekers.
