Historic Church Firebombed in Stockholm No-Go Zone

Swedish police are investigating a firebombing attack on one of Stockholm's oldest churches, which lies in the migrant-heavy 'no-go zone' of Tengsta.

Spånga Church, originally built in the 12th century, was reportedly targeted with multiple Molotov cocktails at around 4 a.m. on Wednesday morning, according to Dagen.

"It is a strong symbolic act against a church. I do not know why anyone would want to do this," said Pastor Jerker Alsterlund.

Alsterlund says he shocked by an attack "so clearly directed at the church."

One firebomb was thrown at the church gate while two more were tossed at windows, police say.

While multiple windows were broken, the church did not suffer any fire damage.

Police have launched an investigation.

The suburbs surrounding Spånga Church include the districts of Tengsta and Rinkeby, which have been classified as 'especially vulnerable areas' by Swedish police due to high concentrations of Muslim migrants, violent crime, and jihadist activity.

Shocking footage purportedly from a 2015 attack on police officers in the Tengsta-Rinkeby neighborhood gives a glimpse at the lawless nature of the area, as young males can be seen punching cops and throwing rocks at them.

"You are not in charge here," one of the men tells the officers.

In 2017, a Swedish prosecutor compared Rinkeby and the nearby region to a "war zone," telling Sveriges Radio, "When the police work there, they work as the armed forces would have done."
