Troublesome New Years Eve

Published tisdag 2 januari 2007 kl 11.39

Police districts throughout much of Sweden have reported an unusually troublesome New Years eve, with many reports of violence including assault and battery, rape, arson and of course drunkenness.

Stockholm county police had registered some 900 incidents since the clock struck midnight, which is almost twice as munch than on a regular day.

In the west county of Västra Götland police say several people were injured from being attacked by a knife, as well as many cases of assault and battery.

On the Baltic island of Gotland however it was a much calmer New Years Eve, with less incidents reported than previous New Years.
