Sweden, stabbing during a political event: a woman died, a 33-year-old tied to a neo-Nazi group arrested

SWEDEN. Attack with a knife during the annual Almedalen political festival in Visby, on the island of Gotland. According to police reports, a 60-year-old woman died as a result of the attack during the political event.
“Unfortunately I can report that the woman died of her injuries,” said Fredrik Persson, chief of police in Gotland, reported by local media at a press conference. The attacker, he added, is a 33-year-old man and was arrested shortly after the events but refused to explain the reason that prompted him to make the gesture.

According to the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, the suspect could be a person from neo-Nazi circles. The man allegedly participated in the demonstrations of Nordiska motståndsrörelsen (Nmr), a Nordic resistance movement, a neo-Nazi-oriented group present in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark.
The police investigation, which has not yet confirmed the information and does not rule out a political motive, is continuing. The attack took place, according to local media, at the point where a centrist exponent should have spoken.
The young stabber was pushed and thrown to the ground by a 69-year-old retiree, allowing him to be arrested. The man, Lars Reuterberg, said he heard someone shout “stop him” and saw the 30-year-old jump over a fence.


“I saw him, I thought he snatched a purse or something. He wasn’t big, he was hardly a bodybuilder, so he just ignored it for a while. Then when he passed me, I pushed him hard. “
The annual convention brings Sweden’s most prominent politicians together for a week in Visby, the largest city on the island of Gotland.
