bottles thrown at police

Trouble overnight in Malmö

One person was arrested and eleven taken into custody by Malmö police Thursday night following an evening of unrest in the Rosengård suburb.

Police were in the area to investigate a group of young people they suspected were dealing drugs, and this then triggered the disturbances over night. Stones and glass bottles were thrown at officers as they tried to regain control over the the situation.

Police were also helped by heavy rain, which helped to clear the streets, news agency TT reports.
