Malmö shootings

"Firearms crackdown needed"

Published lördag 23 oktober 2010 kl 10.31

Sweden has to crack down on illegal firearms. That's the call from the mayor of Malmö after reports of yet another shooting in the city Friday evening. A cyclist claims he heard something whizz by him, but wasn't hit in the incident.

Mayor Ilmar Reepalu says that Justice Minister Beatrice Ask has to take her responsibility and increase the punishments for those caught with weapons without a license. Writing in the newspaper Dagens Nyheter he adds more has to be done to stop the smuggling of weapons into Sweden via the Öresund bridge, claiming that customs officers are currently powerless to do anything.

At the same time experts called in by the police have tried to quell speculation that the shooting may have racial motives, saying the shootings may just have happened in the areas where the shooter lives.
