Violence in Sweden Debated

Swedish psychologists have been debating if a school massacre similar to the killings at Virgina Tech could happen here.

The shootings in Blacksburg, Virginia claimed 33 lives, including the killer.

Some swedish experts claim that it is just a question of time before this could happen here because of growing stresss, tension and alienation. Others say the chances are extremely remote, because of the restrictions on access to guns here.

Two Swedish students nearly caught in the shooting are reported to be uninjured, as are several other Swedes studying at Virginia Tech.
