Swedish police arrest 14 Poles said to be planning attack on refugees

Fourteen extreme right-wing Polish citizens were arrested by the Swedish police in the city of Nynashamn, about 60 kilometers south of Stockholm, after announcing on Facebook that they intended to attack a facility housing asylum seekers. They were found to have iron pipes and knives in their possession. The police are checking whether the group, ranging in age from 22 to 35, is connected to the anti-Islamic European group PEGID. Sweden has the largest percentage of asylum seekers per overall population in Europe, with 163,000 asylum requests in 2015.
