Firefighters abandon house blaze after being attacked in Swedish no-go zone

Firefighters in the city of Malmö, were forced to let a building burn to the ground after they were violently attacked in Swedish no-go zone.

The first report was that two cars were set on fire, whilst another fire started at a nearby building on Sörbäcksgatan street. When the firefighters tried to put out the second blaze, glass bottles were thrown at them and at their vehicles. The attack forced the firemen to abandon the rescue works, house burned to the ground. Police who arrived on the scene were also attacked with glass bottles. Read more here, police official report.

Attacks on emergency services personnel in Sweden are becoming more common. In some no-go zones even post office workers refuse to work. In heavily migrant-populated suburbs like Husby, Tensta, and Rinkeby in Stockholm, emergency service workers have been attacked on multiple occasions.
