20 masked men throw firebombs at synagogue in Gothenburg, Sweden

Twenty-one masked men have been seen throwing firebombs at a synagogue in central Gothenburg (Sweden). ‘We are in place with a number of units,’ said Peter Nordengard, police chief of the West Western region, told the Expressen newspaper.

The attack took place as Jewish students were holding a party inside the synagogue. The attacked happened after several hundred people marched through the centre of Malmo on Friday night to protest against President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
