Church bells rang out in several towns and cities in Sweden at noon, Tuesday, as a protest against the continued deportation of Afghan asylum seekers.

Officials behind the movement want an amnesty for young afghans facing deportation from Sweden when they turn 18.

Radio Sweden visited Västerled Church in Bromma which took part in the national demonstration. One of its pastors Hanna Bäckman says, "we can't be silent anymore. ... We want a change."
