HELSINKI – Unrest erupted in southern Sweden late Saturday despite police moving a rally for a far-right anti-Islam group, which had been planning to burn a Koran among other things, to a new location as a precaution.

There were reports of scuffles and unrest in the southern town of Landskrona after a demonstration planned there by Denmark’s right-wing Stram Kors party was moved to the nearby city of Malmö, about 45 kilometers (27 miles) south.

Swedish police said up to 100 youths, most of whom threw stones, set cars, tires and trash cans on fire, and erected a fence that obstructed traffic.

The situation calmed down in Landskrona late Saturday but remained tense, police said, adding that no injuries were reported in the operation.

Violent clashes erupted Friday evening between protesters and counter-protesters in the central city of Örebro ahead of Strambourg’s plan to burn a Koran there, injuring 12 policemen and burning four police cars.

Video footage and photos from chaotic scenes in Örebro showed burning police cars and protesters throwing stones and other objects at police officers in riot gear.

The demonstration took place on Saturday evening in a central park in Malmö, where Rasmus Palaudan, leader of the Strambourg, addressed dozens of people.
A few counter-protesters threw stones at the protesters and the police had to use pepper spray to disperse them.

Paludan, a Danish lawyer who also holds Swedish citizenship, founded Stram Kurs, or “Hard Line,” in 2017.
“Stram Kurs is the most patriotic political party in Denmark,” says the party’s website, which operates on an anti-immigration and anti-Islam agenda.
