Södertälje Discusses Industry, Iraqi Refugees, Arson

Published tisdag 31 mars 2009 kl 15.56
Fire in Södertälje

Södertälje is Stockholm’s small neighbor city to the south.

It’s the home of truck maker Scania and pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca delivering to the world market.

It has also opened the door to many Iraqi refugees seeking asylum here from the war – embarrassing some in the United States which has accepted so few and earning the city’s major the highly unusual honor of coming to speak about Iraqi refugees to the American congress.

And it’s the scene of some mysterous fires at chain stores – with some claiming these were anti-American protests.

Members of the American community in this Scandinavian country arranged an exchange of views on the topic of Södertälje – its exports, refugee-friendly attitude and rich Swedish traditions.
