Danish far-right leader burns another copy of Quran in Sweden
Rasmus Paludan, who has dual Danish and Swedish citizenship, recently burned copies of the Quran in the Frolunda, Boras and Trollhattan regions of the southwestern province of Vastergotland, which has a large population of Muslim residents.
Around 100 police officers, as well as 10 plainclothes officers from the Swedish intelligence agency SAPO, accompanied Paludan to protect him against counter-demonstrators.
Paludan has burnt the holy book in various cities in Denmark since 2017.
Riots broke out in the cities Malmo, Norrkoping and Jonkoping as well as in the capital Stockholm, leaving 125 police vehicles damaged and 34 officers injured, while 13 people were detained.
On April 14, Paludan burned a copy of the holy book in Sweden's southern city of Linkoping. He also threatened to burn copies of the holy book during future rallies.
