There was an emergency meeting of worried residents called in Höganäs municipality to address the possible risk to the municipality by Vilks' presence there.
"The reason for the meeting was that we wanted to have the latest information from the police. Our head of security was on hand and we gave her the task of coming up with a plan of action, if something should happen in our municipality related to Lars Vilks, or anyone else, so that we could be even more prepared," Peter Kovaks, Höganäs municipality president, told Swedish Radio in Malmö.
Lars Vilks' house is nearby a preschool and a school, and many people expressed their anxiety over the situation. The police have decided that Vilks is not able to live in the municipality during the near future.
