Two detained over synagogue attack

Published fredag 15 december 2017 kl 12.04

Prosecutors have remanded two young men into custody for suspected arson against a synagogue in Sweden's second-biggest city.

Surveillance cameras caught a group of roughly 10 individuals, some wearing face masks, coming up to the building and throwing a flaming object into the yard of Gothenburg's synagogue.

Prosecutors told Swedish Radio that the detained suspects, age 18 and 21, live in Gothenburg but are citizens of a country that neighbors Israel.

They believe US President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital helped trigger the attack.
