The home of a family living in an apartment block in Rinkeby in west Stockholm was attacked in the early hours of Friday morning. At 3.30am, somebody arrived at the front door, poured flammable liquid through the letterbox and started a fire.

"It started burning at the door but the family was able to put the fire out," said police spokesman Klas Olsson.

The family said they had a strong suspicion as to who might have been behind the attack.

"The prosecutor has put out a warrant for the arrest of a known offender," said Olsson.
