Police dispersed five other people from the anti-Semitism protest at the Raoul Wallenberg square in central Stockholm, where Prime Minister Stefan Löfven was among the speakers.
However, the police declined to comment on Expressen's claim that the group belonged to the Nordic Resistance Movement.
It involved a number of people who, among other things, shouted different words in order to disturb the demonstration, which they succeeded in doing. We arrested one person for the crime of hate speech and moved away five others."
- Police press spokesperson Anna Westberg.
Prime minister Stefan Löfven, Culture and Democracy Minister Alice Bah Kuhnke, Centre Party leader Annie Lööf, and Liberal Party leader Jan Björklund all gave speeches at the demonstration on Wednesday evening, which was staged following the recent attack on a synagogue in Gothenburg and pro-Palestine demonstrations in Malmö and Stockholm, where anti-Semitic chants were heard.
