Swedish police are hunting for members of an anti-Islam group from Denmark who are alleged to have burned a copy of the Qur’an in Stockholm’s no-go Rinkeby suburb.
Swedish police say they are searching for a blue Skoda car registered in Denmark in connection to the burning of a copy of the Qur’an on Thursday, saying an investigation into incitement to racial hatred has been launched.
The incident is thought to be connected to controversial anti-Islam campaigner and lawyer Rasmus Paludan who has planned several demonstrations across Stockholm this weekend, newspaper Aftonbladet reports.
