Hunger Strikers to Hospital

Nine Afghans have been taken to the hospital after a three day long hunger strike in central Stockholm.

Around 50 people are participating in the ongoing protest against the Swedish Migration Board’s decision to deport hundreds of Afghans.

The protesters have not been eating or drinking since Saturday morning, and under the hot weather conditions in Stockholm over the last few days - their fourth day of refusing drink and food left one striker unconscious.
