Torbjörn Nilsson, the head of Gotland police, said: “It is to make sure that we can handle our fundamental mission as police on Gotland and to enable us to act on the incidents of the past few days.
“You have to distinguish between these past weekends and what it is like on Gotland in general.
“Gotland is safe, compared to other places, and there are few crimes compared to the rest of the country. But the way people have now acted is unprecedented.”
n 2015, nearly 200,000 refugees and migrants entered Sweden – and 60 per cent of people now want their government to launch a crackdown on immigration.
Only 13 per cent of the population said that they thought more refugees and migrants should be accepted.
