    No injuries are reported. There has been an increasing string of violence in Sweden between the Kurdish and Turkish immigrants, and comes just hours after 30 Turks were killed in an explosion blamed on Kurdish militia

    Glad there are no injuries. The idea of sectarian violence continuing amongst diaspora is really disheartening. Surely you emigrate to get away from all that, not replicate it in your new host country? Hopefully the Swedish state crack down on this.

    Old hatreds take many generations to forget

    I'd guess that Kurds in Sweden also have greater access to News reports on Turkish attacks on Kurds, since it isn't censored
