Police defused an explosive device in one of Sweden’s second largest city Gothenburg on Wednesday evening. The device was planted in a local refugee camp and was spotted by one of the employees working there.
The refugees of camp were immediately evacuated as the site was cordoned off. The bomb squad later told that the object had “some form of explosives.”
The spokesman of the local police told the press that the incident was serious and could have caused a huge number of casualty if not foiled in time, as the camp has nearly 140 refugees accommodated.
Investigation has been launched, though no arrests have been made so far.
