Sweden Descends into Turmoil

The headlines tell the story. The Daily Mail chronicles Sweden’s descent into turmoil. They need no commentary.

Yesterday we read:

Swedish police reveal they have dealt with 5,000 incidents involving migrants since October - and say the problem is increasing 
  • Officers have been called out to nearly 600 assaults in last three months
  • Two bomb threats and 450 fights also linked to migrants or asylum seekers
  • Police chief warned an ever-increasing number of officers was needed
And this, also from yesterday:

EXCLUSIVE -The city destroyed by migration: Inside the Swedish town where armed gangs patrol the streets, crime has exploded and a beautiful social worker's murder has shocked Europe
  • Social worker Alexandra Mezher, 22, was murdered in Mölndal on Monday
  • Gothenburg suburb last year took in more unaccompanied refugee children than anywhere else in the country – 4,041 added to a population of 63,000 
  • Received £22.6million to provide housing for unaccompanied minors – the most state funding per capita than any town or city in Sweden  
  • Crime figures reveal there were 222 criminal complaints linked to migrant centres – between 20 October 2015 and 8 January this year 
  • MailOnline went inside lawless town where eyes of Europe have been watching since the senseless stabbing 
A few days earlier the Daily Mail reported on the situation in Stockholm’s central train station:

Swedish police warn Stockholm's main train station is now overrun by migrant teen gangs 'stealing and groping girls'
  • Hundreds of Moroccan children living on the streets in Stockholm
  • Accused of stealing and assaulting security guards at the main station 
  • Police say they grope girls and 'slap them in the face when they protest'
  • One in five Moroccan migrant children run away from housing since 2012
And, this morning we read this:

Hundreds-strong' mob of masked men rampage through Stockholm station beating up refugee children in revenge attack for female asylum centre worker killed by Somali 'boy' 
  • Black-clad masked men targeted refugees at Stockholm train station
  • The mob, linked to football hooligans, targeted unaccompanied minors 
  • Before attack they handed out racist leaflets with message 'Enough now'
  • They also refer to alleged murder of Swedish aid worker Alexandra Mezher
  • She was stabbed to death breaking up fight between two migrant boys
