Rosengård, an area dominated by Muslim immigrants, has been in the news of late with the forced closing of children’s nurseries after violent attacks by youths. Violence and riots broke out again last night.

Malmö: Fires and stone-throwing in Rosengård
April 29 2010
Some 20 police units were dispatched to the Rosengård district of Malmö to try to calm things down, after unrest broke out there on Wednesday evening.
A large number of young people gathered at Ramels road. Among other things, they set fire to a car, storage containers, a kiosk and a dressing room behind Rosengård’s school.

The fire department and rescue units needed police escorts to fight the fires in various parts of the district, since firefighters were exposed to stone-throwing.
The police believed that they had the situation under control later in the night, as the situation had calmed down and police could withdraw most of the 20 squads which had been dispatched.
During the night the police sent out an alert about rioting.
