Swedish Court Protects Identity of Migrant Suspected of Killing Women in Arson Attack

The identity of a foreign man suspected of killing two women in a residential arson attack is being hidden by a court in Sweden, according to reports.

On March 4, an apartment in the Stockholm suburb of Alby was torched by a suspect who poured flammable liquid through the mail slot.

A woman in her 50s and an 18-year-old female died in the fire, while three males survived.

A suspect was detained following the blaze but the Södertörn district court is keeping a tight lid on details about the case, Samnytt reports.

"I have requested that the suspect's name and other information be covered by confidentiality during the detention hearing and also in the event of a detention decision," said chamber prosecutor Kajsa Lindberg.

"The reason is that there is a danger that the suspect or someone close to him will be subjected to violence or suffer other serious harm if the information is disclosed."

However, a petition for detention reviewed by Samnytt reportedly makes clear "the detainee is a foreign national in an unknown country."

Authorities suspect the attack is tied to escalating gang violence in the area as factions target family and associates of their rivals.

Infowars has frequently reported on crime and violence tied to immigration and gang activity in Sweden.

Federal Reserve rate hikes are killing regional banks and the housing market.
