Arsonist sets fire to Swedish mosque, injuring five – police

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - An arsonist set fire to a mosque in the Swedish town of Eskilstuna on Thursday, injuring five people, police said, an incident which comes amid an intense debate over immigration. The immigration debate has pitted the far right, which wants to cut the number of asylum seekers allowed into Sweden by 90 percent, against mainstream parties intent on preserving the Nordic country's liberal policy. Between 15 and 20 people were in the mosque, located in the ground floor of a building in a mainly residential area, when the fire erupted. #Arabic #Argentina #Brazil #China #France #India #Latin America #Mexico #Middle East #opinion #Russia #United Kingdom

He also held some countries responsible for the rise in terrorism across the Middle East through supply of ammunition to terrorists, emphasizing that advocates of terrorist groups have certainly committed a folly. #Ajax #Chrome #Firefox #IANS #ians-photo #ians-video #Interview #jpg #Multimedia #News #NewsTracker #science
