    Around 15 people reportedly connected to a right-wing extremist group briefly stopped the Stockholm Pride event, which saw 45,000 participants and thousands more Stockholmers celebrating in the city. The parade, which passed through the Swedish capital’s Östermalm neighbourhood, was briefly stopped at around 2:45pm by right-wing extremists, reports news agency TT. The group that interrupted the march is thought to be connected to right-wing extremist network Nordisk Ungdom (Nordic Youth), according to a report by Aftonbladet. “They interrupted the program and stopped the parade temporarily,” Mats Eriksson of Stockholm Police told TT. Eriksson confirmed that the people were “protesting”, but...

    Police have raised concern after groups of youths aged under 15 — one thought to be as young as nine — were caught robbing or trying to rob people in Stockholm last night. A reveler reported being robbed of their mobile phone at a bar in the popular Södermalm district of Stockholm at around 2 am on Monday, getting hit in the face when trying to get their phone back. The victim did not need an ambulance, said police. The suspects, two young boys, ran off but were caught by police. An hour later, youths on a bike tried to...

    A posh Stockholm neighborhood will soon see its traffic lights receive a facelift as the standard lone figure on the crossing signals is replaced by same-sex couples. Forty-eight of the new lights will be temporarily installed in the Östermalm district to mark Stockholm Pride from July 31st to August 6th, in an initiative by the City of Stockholm. […] The lights will be situated around the Pride Park, which this year is located near the Stockholm Olympic Stadium in Östermalm. So far, reactions to the initiative have been “generally very positive,” [deputy mayor Daniel] Helldén said, with comments praising the...

    STOCKHOLM — Swedish police said Saturday that they believe they have captured the man accused of turning a beer truck into a weapon a day earlier by driving it into a crowd of pedestrians in a rampage that left four people dead. Authorities did not divulge the man’s name but said he is a 39-year-old from Uzbekistan who had been known to security services as “a marginal character” for the past year. Police said that when they first investigated him, they had found no connections to extremism. Authorities did not say when the man had come to Sweden. The arrest...

    Update 11:02 am: Another statement from the Swedish police, which said it currently cannot rule out that attack in Stockholm is an act of terror, given recent events in the rest of Europe.

    A group of Swedish football fans have launched a protest against a new ban on wearing masks at stadiums, exploiting an exception to the ban by wearing niqabs to cover their faces. On March 1st, the ban on wearing masks in the stands at Swedish football stadiums entered into force in an effort to combat violent behavior at games. Exceptions to the ban can be made however for people covering their faces in the line of duty like police, or people who cover their face for religious reasons. And it was the latter exception that some supporters of Stockholm club...

    A popular nightlife spot in Stockholm has put several of its club nights on hold following an increase in sexual assault, violence and thefts, the venue announced. “We had an enormous amount of messages, particularly from female guests, who complained of sexual harassment and bad attitudes,” Ingmari Pagenkemper, Managing and Artistic Director at the Södra Teatern club on Södermalm, told The Local. Security staff had regularly been ejecting people identified as gropers or troublemakers, she said — sometimes as many as 15 on a single night — but the combination of darkness, loud music, and a large venue occasionally made...

    TRAIN passengers were left with breathing problems in Sweden tonight after a masked man threw liquid on them as the carriage doors slammed shut - trapping them inside. The attack happened on a subway train at Sankt Eriksplan station in Stockholm, where emergency services rushed to the scene. One passenger onboard said commuters were left in a state of panic, most suffering from breathing problems and others desperately rushing for the exits. Reports initially stated the man threw a rucksack into the carriage, but Swedish police have confirmed it was a noxious liquid instead – the motives behind the incident...

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Swedish police say riots broke out overnight in a predominantly immigrant Stockholm suburb after officers arrested a suspect on drug charges. Spokesman Lars Bystrom said Tuesday that unidentified people, including some wearing masks, threw rocks at police, set cars on fire and looted shops in Rinkeby. One officer was slightly injured when hit by a rock. No arrests were made. Bystrom says one officer fired his gun, not as a warning shot but because he was "in a situation that demanded he used his firearm."

    Lefties have given us some really great theories, as long as they’re never put into practice. For example, do you like your doctor? If so: Have you kept your doctor? In related news, we’ve got plenty of precious snowflakes here in America. You might’ve seen them this past week, melting down over losing an election like it’s the first time such a thing has ever happened in the history of the world. But not all snowflakes are as easy to move aside, as the city of Stockholm has learned.

    Stockholm’s “gender-equal” snow-clearing policy is not to blame for the traffic chaos which has engulfed the Swedish capital, the architect of the policy has claimed. “Gender-equal snow cleaning is not to blame here,” Daniel Helldén, the city’s Green Party transport head told the Expressen newspaper, stressing that the policy, which prioritizes cleaning pavements and cycle lanes over roads, did not even appear to have even been followed. […] Stockholm’s municipal government, a coalition of the Social Democrats and the Green Party, brought in gender equal snow cleaning last year, pledging to make moving around the city on icy winter days...

    The Swedish capital had more snow than on any November day in a century. Stockholm was covered by at least 30 centimeters of snow early on Thursday morning, more than on any other November day since records began in 1905, according to national weather agency SMHI. The previous November record was set in 1985 when the snow was 29 centimeters thick—however, that does not even come close to the all-time record for Stockholm: 76 centimeters in March 1909. …
  • Is Hyperloop coming to Europe? Super-fast transport system...from Helsinki to Stockholm...

    Hyperloop One has released a proposal that will allow passengers to commute 310 miles (500km) between Helsinki in Finland and Stockholm in Sweden in just 28 minutes. Currently it takes around an hour to fly from Stockholm to Helsinki, or a 16 hour ferry journey. The company was among the first to demonstrate its technology for the transport system, dreamed up by Tesla and Space X founder Elon Musk, in a trial in the Navada desert in May. It hopes to build pods that can travel through vacuum tubes at speeds of up to 700mph. In a feasibility study drawn...

    Most of us by now are quite familiar with the parable of the viper, in which a kind-hearted person finds a venomous snake freezing in the woods and decides to nurse it back to health. Once the snake is revived, however, he fatally bites the do-gooder. "You knew I was a snake when you took me in," it explains. This scenario keeps playing itself out in the West time and time again and is perfectly illustrated by the following story. Back in 2015 a Swedish mother, in the spirit of multiculturalism, decided to do good and open her home to...

    A new, exhaustive study on precipitation levels over more than 1,000 years shows the assumptions made by the United Nations and other climate-change activists are badly flawed, suggesting human activity may not be having the impact on global climate that so many insist it’s having. The report from Stockholm University in Sweden examined Northern Hemisphere rainfall statistics over a 1,200-year period. Researchers concluded that extremes between heavy rainfall totals and droughts were more severe centuries ago, before the fossil fuel-based economy ever existed. “Hopefully, this will be one more nail in the coffin of the great deception that is the...
