Some form of explosive was detonated at around 1.30am Tuesday outside Gökboet on Lilla Torg - a popular nightlife area in central Malmö with numerous restaurants and bars.

One person was taken to hospital with glass splinters in their face. According to initial reports the injured party was working as a night porter at the Hotel Renaissance on Master Johansgatan, a block away from the blast.

The bomb caused extensive damage to Gökboet and to several other buildings in the vicinity, with a number of windows smashed.

"Gökboet is located on quite a narrow street, so there was quite considerable damage," said Mikael Lindh at Malmö police.

No other people are reported to have sustained injuries in the attack.

The area has been cordoned off and police technicians were conducting an examination of the scene during the night to try to establish the exact nature of the explosive.

Police were reportedly not aware of any specific threats directed at the restaurant. Malmö police are working to identify all those with a connection to the restaurant and will conduct a number of interviews with witnesses.

Story continues below…

The case has been classified as devastation endangering the general public, which falls under the Swedish Act on Criminal Responsibility for Terrorist Offences (2003:148).

"At the moment the incident is being classified as devastation endangering the general public. The technical examination has been completed, but it could take a while before we establish the type of explosive involved," Cindy Schönström Larsson told news agency TT on Tuesday morning.

Is Malmo in Iraq? I always thought it was in Sweden.....odd!
09:26 May 10, 2011 by swedejane
Must be the internet! There was no internet here 25 years ago...now everybody has the internet...so that MUST be it.

Or maybe it's Miley Cyrus...we didn't have Miley Cyrus music 25 years ago, now it's everywhere...maybe that's it!

I could go all day with this correlation equals causation...
09:27 May 10, 2011 by ruimove
Malmo it's like Chicago during the 1920's, racketeering still makes money and if you don't pay we bomb you business.

Aint multiculturalism dandy?
10:00 May 10, 2011 by N18h7m4r3

The internet is here in Stockholm as well.....

Or ppl hear to Miley Cyrus here in Stockholm as well but you don't get such news from Stockholm.....May be I missed something.......

This is beyond a joke.

The police know full well who is doing this and refuse to do a thing about it as they are scared.

It is now impossible to open a resturant in southern Sweden without paying protection money and they police do nothing to stop it.

Canada and Australia are all perfect examples of multiculturalism, but you don't see bombing everyday in Vancouver or Sydney
10:26 May 10, 2011 by RitaPita

I totally agree with you. The difference is in Canada and Australia, the minorities are treated great and have no reason to feel like they're being looked down on... So they contribute and create great things to our societies. ... and that is assuming *IF* the Malmo bombing are related to a minority group


Shame on you. Grow up and realize that there is A LOT of sh*t going down in this country that is to be blamed to locals as well:

1- the worst serial rapist in Sweden's history

2- countless of medical blunders that sacrifice many lives due to blatant negligence and stupidity.

Shall I go on....?

I'm not defending anyone, but your comment shows how you lack open-mindedness.
10:34 May 10, 2011 by justiceforall
space between poor and rich is higher now in Stockholm,(Stockholm illustrates growing wealth divide; The Local, 9th May, 2011). The poorest swedes get mere social benefits, no job, so they have manythings to do like bombing, terrorisms, gun dealing with columbian guerrilla, they have nothing to do so they just s-e-x- with their child. WHO KNOWS MALMÖ BOMBING MAY DONE BY THEM...!!!

Sweden (Gentle country) sells Gripen, Tanks, Heavy Guns, and many more Lovely machines to the Afghanistan, India, UAE, Libya and to many poor countries. So may be one of them came here in Malmö and took a small revenge......!!!! Who knows.
10:35 May 10, 2011 by jostein

You are reaching for straws. Alternatively, you are ignorant. But you cannot fool me, i remember sweden before this multiculturalist mayhem. The shame is all on you and your multiculturalist cohorts for destroying a once peaceful and prosperous country.
10:43 May 10, 2011 by blursd
I can just see the police in Malmö right now scratching their heads and asking themselves, "who on Earth could have done this?"

Doesn't take a genius to know where to start looking for suspects ... it might just have something to do with all the refugees who come from countries where this type of thing is commonplace. Oh, but wait ... that isn't politically correct, so we have to act like the 500 pound gorilla in the room doesn't exist.

I don't remember any bombings in Malmö 30, 40, 50, etc ... years ago. Now, what has changed in the last 30 or so years in Malmö that might explain this?

It 'aint prejudice if it's true ...

Swedish politicians know what they are doing. I don't believe they have any good intentions with their immigration policy. Believing that they care about the future chaos that awaits sweden will not help. Swedes must either stop their policians from allowing immigrants into this country or they must change their discriminatory attitude and provide equal opportunities for all. Sweden has the right to do any of these two. But allowing poor people in and treating them like sub-humans will only backfire. Immigrants are bad people by nature.
11:32 May 10, 2011 by Streja
It happened already a hundred years ago....

11:36 May 10, 2011 by Observour
Very sorry for the mistake above, I wanted to say immigrants are NOT bad people by nature. I am an immigrant too.
11:38 May 10, 2011 by infidel2012
Well then, here it comes. It would seem that this will keep happening more frequently, and the public officials will still be in denial. It's now time for the mussies to pack it up and return to the sh*thole country from where they originated.

You have now wore out you welcome, if there ever was one.

I quote a reference from a classic Beatles song...

"Get Back, Get Back, Get Back to where you once belonged"
11:40 May 10, 2011 by Stickeroo
Ok, well for everyone standing up for Canada, let's not toot our horns too early. Being from Vancouver, I can tell you that gang violence is a MAJOR problem. The difference being that they just do drive by's and targeted shootings, not bomb places (although if they had access to them they probably would).

And as for Stockholm...here they don't bomb you, they just come into the place with AK's and gun down the owner during business hours.

Bottom line, there are problems everywhere. Many factors contribute to these problems, not just immigration. A majority of people immigrating here aren't doing so with the mindset of committing crime. Some are just led down that road by lack of opportunity, or association.
11:44 May 10, 2011 by jostein

Immigrants are not treated as "subhumans". On the contrary in fact, huge amounts of resources go into the wellfare of immigrants.

However, the immigrants that came the last 20 years came to a country that did not demand labour, especially not lowskilled such. And a country where the majority of the people truly didnt want this immigration. So i understand if sweden seems cold and harsh from the other side of the fence.

My personal guess is that this policy is driven by a loose alliance of people that hate the nationstate and use immigrants as cannonfodder to destroy it.
11:52 May 10, 2011 by Rishonim
Nemesis, I agree with you. The police know who they are and will do nothing because either they are on the take or are plain afraid of a confrontation. Those responsible for the bombing are members of the local Balkan Mafia.
11:55 May 10, 2011 by SaraMx

Well, you needed to finish your comment with such a stupid statement...

Now immigrants are bad by nature.

So they were Mother Theresa, Albert Einstein, Ingrid Bergman...

From Charlize Theron to Cristiano Ronaldo or Anthony Hopkins...

They are all bad by nature, because they were born in a country and decided to reside and work somewhere else.

God... some people open their mouth and they don't even think at all.

OK... now I'm the one who made a mistake... I didn't read your second comment because I was writing my comment before you corrected yourself but I didn't send it, I'm feeding my baby, I'm sorry.

I got very pissed off with people insulting other countries. In the new about Mexico (my country), a couple of idiots were barking insults about it when I'm sure they have never been there at all. It's easy to take the first image that the overmanipulated news give all the time.

@jostein and chima_arsenal

Yes, I agreed with his comment all the way... that's what I complained with the way he finished, I thought it was totally irrational. My bad.
12:09 May 10, 2011 by ruimove
I didn't know that bike gangs mafia was mostly immigrants, love to see those "afgan(g)s "with the custom harley and the 50's chevy!! before talking about swedish issues at least learn about sweden, the BIG mafia is mostly swedish with some balcan and turkish flavour (but all mixed in the gangs) plus in some areas danish and norwegians, the minorities usually deal with small drugs and crime and yes , this is not new, do you think Sweden in the 50's/60's was a no crime paradise?Don't you see Leif programs??
12:31 May 10, 2011 by eppie

Yes (you just beat me to it).

Anyone reading up a bit on the situation there in the south knows there is a gang-war going on involving many biker gangs (lots of Danes.....and I guess people here don't consider them immigrants), there are also a few other gangs of immigrants involved, but I guess the chances are 70% that blond swedes/danes are responsible.
12:50 May 10, 2011 by ruimove
@eppie 100% right.

there's a area war going on to control the drug influx from europe, the danes want to expand to south sweden, the restaurant bomb is the normal behavior when you dont pay the monthly protection fee, nothing new here. Stockholm is more quiet because there's no war going on between bikers, free to go around banks, casinos and vans.

let's not enter the skåne nationalists histeria please.

I don't think you're the kind of immigrant people are worrying about...

Immigrants come from different cultures. Culture dictates behavior.

19:06 May 10, 2011 by stablemate
suppose culture is about bombing to make a point in malmo....ther is real trouble in south sweden.....the mix of cultures not working to well in this area.....and biker gangs not helping much aswell to spread harmony

Yes, it could be gas I suppose, this happened last year in Shrewsbury, due to gas:

With the exception of those of my ancestors who are native aboriginal, Canada was built on immigration so multi-culturalism was a naturally occuring process. In Sweden its been something that has been forced on a previously homegeneous society in the past thirty years by a well meaning but entirely naive government policy.

Canada's immigration policies are far from perfect. We've definately found that some groups are harder to integrate than others, hence the immigrant street gang violence in some of our cities, but lets not forget that in some of our prairie cities the worst street gangs are actually native aboriginal. Socio-economic factors are as significant as ethnicity, if not more so.

lol biggest pile of rubbish I have ever heard. Visit Sydney (or any part of Australia for real), minorities (as in non-whites) get treated like dirt. Indians get stabbed and assaulted frequently (one had acid poured into his eyes last year for talking to a white girl), Chinese and blacks get treated like dirt and let's not forget the Aborigines... the natives of the country... oh wait, the white Australians HAVE forgetten them.
18:27 May 12, 2011 by Icarusty
I find it somewhat sad, but also hilarious in a different light, that every time something bad happens in Sweden it is automatically attibruted to foreigners, immigrants - the outsiders. Indeed back in medieval history problems were associated with outsiders, regardless of the internal corruption/crime that already existed. Foisting your troubles by blaming it on others is a convenience that may ease your mind, but ultimately does nothing to solve the problem. Bombings, conflicts, gun crime, drug trafficking... I think you'll find a healthy mix of immigrants and natives alike participating in the downfall of your country.

Carry on focusing on just one of those groups will do nothing for the long term prosperity of your country.
19:32 May 12, 2011 by havendjones
these types of crimes are committed throughout the world and you can say it's the new neighbors or the poor looking to exploit, but in the end you'll find one thing common among the perpetrators, they are either god-less or self appointed martyrs, which is worse than being godless because you trick others into the same godlessness.
21:51 May 12, 2011 by Truth_Teller
@ Icarusty.

Sure there are all different people that commit crimes, but the correlation here is: Is there one group that commits a number of crimes vastly in-proportional to their numerical representation of the population? Of course there are, in Sweden it is 1st and 2nd Generation Immigrants.

In order to move towards a solution we need to act like adults.

1. Publish all the data so we know what is really going on. Yes the public can take it.

2. Figure out who is the highest risk group specifically.

3. Have an open and honest debate about the real problem, and ways to deal with it.
23:50 May 12, 2011 by LordSqueak
Sweden is great, we have the worlds first successful suicide bomber. (he managed to blow himself up and no one else.) However, that doesn't mean we suddenly got muslim terrorists everywhere now.

Swedes are perfectly capable of bombing and blasting stuff, but we don't see anyone panicking because some "dirty dreggel" uses a carl gustav anti tank missile on a rival MC HQ.

@aaww and RitaPita

Canada and Australia have some of the most rigid immigration hurdles world wide. Sweden's restrictions are a joke compared to them."

I'm from Canada, you've got to be kidding.

Once they're in, it can take virtually years to get them out.

In the meantime, free legal representation to use every tactic to drag it out for years in the court system, one time entry stipend to you get you established, free medical care, and permanent monthly welfare .

Currently 41,000 illegal immigrants running loose and unaccounted for.

Canada: Polygamous Ontario Muslims collecting multiple benefit cheques

"Polygamous Muslims in Ontario receive benefits, although polygamy is officially illegal in Canada.

An abuse of the welfare system by GTA [Greater Toronto Area, ed.] Muslim men allowed to live in polygamous marriages under a controversial Ontario law was met with shock and outrage yesterday.

Politicians and the public reacted angrily to an exclusive story in yesterday's Toronto Sun about how the men collected social benefits for up to four wives.

Mumtaz Ali, president of the Canadian Society of Muslims, said hundreds of members of his community in polygamous marriages have been collecting welfare for some time. "

It's also a safe haven for many terrorists, and their supporters.

"Another example of tolerasty in Canada, during a bus trip between two cities one passenger cut off the head to another passenger. And no one has ever said a word. Would you like to have such tolerasty around?"

Actually we were all outraged, and voices were loud and clear.

The man was definitely insane, and will likely remain locked up for life.

All our hearts went out to the family and friends of the victim.

The rest of your post hit the nail on the head, and the same sentiments are held by many here.

As for the muslims, i really do feel sorry for them, as they are the true victims of islam, particularly the women and brainwashed children, trapped with no easy way out.

You, and any and all here, are welcome to visit CBC and join in on the conversation on their blog.

We appreciate opinions from all people no matter where they are from, unlike a particular regular here who feels that any non Swedes should not post here and mind their own business.

Sweden is our ally, always has been, and always will be.

Appreciate your speaking to truth.
12:38 May 15, 2011 by wenddiver

Sweden is our ally, always has been, and always will be.

Actually, Sweden is a neutral. It may express freindship to canada, but there is no obligation to defend Canada. It's not just a techniical point, Canada was in two World Wars and Sweden didn't send ships and men to help. To my knowldge no Canadian convoy was ever safeguarded by a Swedish ship.

That's why the commitment of Swedish soldiers to Afganistan is such an important historical contribution. Sweden standing by the other Western Democracies, showsa real commitment to not just stand on the side and sell things, but to work towards a better world without people like the Talliban or Al Queda.

The US was neutral at the begining of World War II and I have never seen a singl book that was proud of that. When threatened by totalitarianism, it is important that all the Democracies close ranks and defend Democracy.

I feel sorry for you Swedes, you are lovely people but have not yet experienced the full taste of enrichment as we have here in the UK.

I would recommend that if or when some of you visit what remains of London, go to Tower Hamlets or Wembley (yes Wembley) in Brent to experience the full Multicult/PC experience.

I guarantee you will look at things a little differently afterwards;

But perhaps you don't need to travel this far, I understand that Malmo is now becoming enriched and that in another part of your country you are turning your churches into Mosques. Well done, that's it make them welcome ! Because after a certain time you will need permission from these enrichers to walk your own streets. Just like in good old Blighty.

There is one good thing about Islam. It woke America out of it's goofy "It's a small, mall world" sentimentality. Finally we have an enemy the whole family can aree on the need fight to the death.

Today I was at a gun show picking up the ussual cases of AK-74 Ammo, GLOCK magazines, ,45 Calibre ammo, ,308 Cal. South African Battle packs and I looked up and there was my girlfriend advising a lady to step up and get a Bushmaster, M-4 Carbine, while you still can. She was maling an intelligent argument for being ready, willing and capable to kill to defend your family, rather than be enslaved. I thought to myself there is the real hope of Western civilization, these are the kind of women who made this country great, these were the base tock of English, German , Irish, and Scandinavian stock that ventured into the wilderness and built this country. The civilian who intends to fight on against the murder zombies we call Islam until there is no Terrorists. God I was proud of her. We can all do more to prepare for the battle between Islam and Freedommand yes shooting games and survival camping are good foor the whole family.

Defend Freedom, against all ideologys.
