Hailing from the 12th century, the Spånga Church is one of the oldest in Stockholm. It is located on the outskirts of Tensta and is flanked by Rinkeby, designated as “vulnerable” by the authorities and characterised by violent crime and Muslim extremism.
The Spånga Church in the immigrant-heavy Stockholm suburb of Tensta has been firebombed, as three Molotov cocktails were thrown at the church, the newspaper Dagen reported.
One firebomb was hurled at the church gate and the other two at the windows, which were smashed.
Despite the bombs penetrating the window panes, the attackers didn’t succeed in setting the church premises on fire, as the flames didn’t catch on the church’s interior.
