Four Grenade Attacks In Less Than A Week In Swedish City

Yesterday, the city of Malmö in southern Sweden was hit by its fourth hand grenade attack in under a week.  It was just 48 hours after the last explosion there rocked residents.

Malmö is Sweden’s third largest city, according to the Swedish publication The Local.se.

The hand grenade detonated in a car parking lot in the Malmö district of Värnhem.

The incident, which caused damage to dozens of cars but no injuries, was different from previous blasts, according to police.

“Many of the other grenade attacks seemed to be aimed at government buildings,” a police spokesman told the Swedish newspaper, Aftonbladet.

“But in the area around this detonation site there are private residences, business premises and government agencies. Therefore, the goal of the blast is unclear at present,” the spokesman concluded.

Police found part of a hand grenade at the site and bomb technicians have been on site to investigate further. The hand grenade seems to have exploded in a van, according to Swedish news agency, TT.

The police are checking the ownership of the damaged cars to see if any of the owners have links to the criminal world.

In related news, police are warning residents in Malmö that there could be unexploded grenades from these or other attacks.

The young woman, Sarah Ericsson, was turning 21, and had balloons in the shape of 21 next to the window. Flip those around, and to people outside the house, it looked an awful lot like “IS,” or the initials for the Islamic State.
