No cries of “Islamophobia?” In that case, we have to conclude that the mosque was torched by a Muslim. (UPDATE) Police have now taken a suspect into custody, but have not released his name or ethnicity. Gee, can’t imagine why.
Anotao Swedish police on Tuesday arrested a man suspected of an arson attack that damaged a mosque overnight in the city of Orebro, the latest in a string of such incidents in recent years.
“We currently see no political or religious motives to this crime and we refrain from all kinds of speculation,” Bo Andersson, the police chief of Orebro, about 200 kilometres (120 miles) west of Stockholm, said at a news conference. He said the suspect was born in 1997, but declined to provide further details.
