The Gothenburg mosque was evacuated Friday evening, following a telephone threat.

“It was someone with a very determined voice who said ‘soon it will explode in the mosque’”, the mosque’s press spokesperson Mohammad El-Alti told the TT news agency.

There were around 120 people attending a lecture in the mosque at the time. The police arrived on the scene and said afterwards there was no risk of the threat being put into practice. The incident is being investigated as an aggravated threat to a group.

During the weeks before and after Christmas there were several fires at mosques in Sweden, at least one obviously a case of arson. There were more than a dozen attacks on mosques in Sweden last year.
