Islamic Terror Threat: Police Increase Security in Sweden
( Rair )
The Stockholm police have launched a special event to deal with a growing threat from Muslims after the burning outside the Turkish embassy on January 21, 2023. The police will increase security at “symbolically important objects.”
Earlier this week, the Security Police (Säpo) announced that the number of terrorist threats against Sweden is increasing. Furthermore, Säpo decided, together with the Police Authority, to deny a new Qur’an burning outside the Turkish embassy that was to be carried out on Thursday. The authorities assess that “public order and security cannot be guaranteed.”
According to the state radio, the police’s special event in Stockholm means that the authority is taking several “security-enhancing measures” at the most “symbolically important objects” in Stockholm.
