Right wing extremists arrested for attempted murder

Two members of the right-wing extremist organization Svenska Motståndsrörelsen (Swedish Resistance Movement) have been arrested for attempted murder, Expo reports.


The two men, aged 22 and 32, were among a group handing out information material at Slussen in Stockholm on Saturday when a group described as "militant anti-fascists" arrived on the scene.

A fight broke out, with one man receiving stab wounds to the neck.

Expo reports that the suspects, both of whom have previous convictions for violent crimes, were arrested and detained in custody on Tuesday.

The Swedish Resistance Movement claimed responsibility for the attack on its website on Sunday.
