Police: Drug turf war behind grenade attacks in Malmö

Police believe that the series of grenade attacks in Malmö this summer has been part of a turf war between drug gangs in the area, Swedish Radio News reports.

According to Chief Superintendent, Stefan Sintéus, not all of the ten or so grenade attacks are linked, but several of them are.

"It all comes down to them marking their territories, where they deal drugs. It may seem like they're fighting over something else, but it all boils down to the dealing of drugs. Drugs is the reason they've armed themselves with guns and explosives," Sintéus said at a meeting today with the city's municipal board.
