He said: “There is a great lack of police officers in Sweden and Malmö. For this reason, it is perhaps time to let the military and police to stand together to reestablish order in the country.
Malmo has seen a surge in violent incidents and during just three months over the summer in 2016, more than 70 cars were set alight by rampaging thugs.
Another three vehicles were destroyed in Malmo in the early hours of Wednesday morning, officials confirmed.
In addition to vandals starting infernos, the hard-hit city is also struggling to cope with crime as Malmo has been described as a “lawless city” and a “battlefield” as the surge in crime continues.On New Year’s Eve, police were forced to admit the city was not safe as migrant gangs sent fireworks into crowds and chanted “jihad” in front of terrified locals.
Swedish police last year issued a report where it detailed incidents from more than 55 areas which it branded as “no-go zones” as it detailed brutal attacks on police, sexual assaults, children carrying weapons and general turmoil sweeping across the country.
