Malmö in southern Sweden was last night hit by a fourth hand grenade attack in under a week – just 48 hours after another explosion rocked residents in a series of blasts in Sweden’s third largest city this summer.
The hand grenade detonated in a car park in the Malmö district of Värnhem early on Sunday morning.
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 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.

2. Here is an amazing BBC video showing a stunning sanctimony and anti French attitude. Really horrifying how they seem to not just equate the aggressor and the victims but somehow make the aggressor into the victim and the defenders into a manifestation of evil. The banners they use, ;Je Suis Charlie Martel’ would make a great T shirt though. Must find a graphic.
The Taliban have seized a police base in northern Afghanistan and captured scores of officers after three days of fighting, officials say.
More than 100 officers surrendered at the base in Badakhshan province. They were released after reportedly handing over their weapons.
The surrender was the largest by Afghan security forces since Nato ended its combat mission in December.
The Taliban have stepped up attacks during their annual spring offensive.
