Center Party Tent Smoke-Bombed

A smoke bomb was thrown into a Center Party tent in Gothenburg on Saturday, news agency TT reports. Six people were in the tent when the attack occurred, and one person was lightly injured as he tried to put out a fire that started in the paper bag encasing the bomb.

"My guess is that they're against our politics," Center Party member Daniel Runvik told Göteborgs-Posten.

The party had erected the tent as part of World Environment Day, and members were handing out free seeds and environmental information to passers-by.

Witnesses saw two young men run from the scene after foul-smelling smoke filled the tent.
