Newsline: Iraq’s Foreign Ministry summons Sweden’s envoy

Iraq’s Foreign Ministry summoned Sweden’s charge d’affaires over planned Quran burnings, reportedly saying that such activity could seriously endanger Sweden’s relations with the Muslim world. In Iran, dozens of students gathered Monday at Sweden’s embassy to protest planned Quran burnings. Chanting “Insulters of Quran must be condemned!” they also repeated traditional slogans such as “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!” (https://www.actionnewsjax.com/news/world/sweden-links-riots/BX4LEYFTD43ZDLX2XKWV7WTCYE/) Sweden, a nation of 10 million, has seen unrest, scuffles, arson and violence since Thursday that has left some police officers and protesters injured. It was triggered by Danish far-right politician Rasmus Paludan’s meetings and planned Quran burnings across the country. Swedish police said Monday that the riots that have shaken several cities and towns in the Nordic country are extremely serious crimes against society and suspect some protesters are linked to criminal gangs that intentionally target police.
