Police clear out camp site for EU migrants in Stockholm
A number of homeless EU migrants who were sleeping under a roof in Sergels Torg – a square in central Stockholm – were evicted Wednesday morning by the police.
Swedish Radio News reported that matresses and pallets had been stood up in a manner which broke the law, and the police said these objects were more the problem than the people themselves. The police arrived at the square at 6 o'clock with an interpreter to make the evictions and informed people there that they could take their things if they wanted them.
The people there were offered a chance to spend the night in a shelter, according to the police.
