Amid growing tensions over immigration in Sweden, pro and anti demonstrators have taken to the streets of Stockholm.

 

The country of 10 million received 163,000 asylum seekers last year, as the migrant crisis gripped Europe.

 

Saturday’s demonstrations – which faced off in the same area of the city – came just days after a 22-year-old worker was stabbed to death in an asylum centre in southwestern Sweden.

 

Police say three arrests were made on Saturday for assault.
