Six men were arrested during the early hours of Saturday in central Rättvik in north-central Sweden and charged with attempted murder.

According to police, the suspects had used broken glass bottles to bludgeon their victim's face.

Sören Sandell, the officer in charge, told TT that the six men had allegedly used a number of bottles, not just one. According to Sandell, the suspects are known to police in the Dalarna area.

The victim was taken to Mora Hospital early this morning, but his injuries are not life-threatening.

The suspects are being questioned on Saturday morning.
