More murders in criminal underworld

Disputes betweem criminal gangs in Sweden often lead to murder, according to Brå, the National Council for Crime Prevention, which writes that the number of killings between rival gangs has doubled since the 1990's, with the cities of Gothenburg, Malmö and Stockholm most affected.

Between the years 1990 and 1996, 46 people were killed in criminal conflicts. In the years 2002 -2008 the number had risen to 71.

Last Wednesday, a 36-year-old man was shot to death in a carpark outside Sibbarp swimming pool in Malmö, which police say is gang-related.
