Sweden: Three neo-Nazis charged with committing bomb attacks after training in Russia
Three Swedish men linked to an ultra-right group have been charged with attempted murder and reckless endangerment in connection with bomb attacks against newly-arrived migrants and left-wing groups. Online news server The Local reported the news last Friday.
Prosecutor Mats Ljungqvist said two of the neo-Nazis had completed military training in Russia just before the attacks. He connected the men to a series of explosions in southern Sweden.
One unexploded bomb was found on 25 January near a campground serving at the time as improvised accommodation for migrants. Prior to that, an explosion on 5 January at an immigration center seriously injured one of its employees.
Last November, according to detectives, the trio placed explosives near the office of the left-wing Syndikalistiskt Forum Kafe in Göteborg. All of the men charged are or previously have been members of the ultra-right "Movement of Nordic Resistance".
According to Ljungqvist "they were not satisfied with the leadership of the movement" for not using violence to achieve their aims. The prosecutor is convinced that the men acted alone and that their actions were not directly connected to the movement.
"We also discovered that two of the suspects completed military training in Russia just before the attacks," the prosecutor said. The three-day trial of the neo-Nazis begins 21 June.
