Stockholm Riots Continue

After the fatal shooting of a man in Stockholm, Sweden, riots broke out and have continued since the 13 May shooting. Seven people were detained briefly and only one was arrested on suspicion of arson. At least one car and one building have been set afire since the riots started.

Accusations of racism from the Stockholm police forces is part of what fueled the riots, as well as claims of substandard services for poorer parts of the city.

According to the Wall Street Journal, while there were some injuries, no fatalities have been reported.
