Meanwhile, in Sweden, a group of suspects have been arrested after more than 100 men, some wearing masks and carrying wooden sticks, descended on central Stockholm Friday night with the intention of beating up refugee children. A flier distributed before the planned attack threatened to give refugee children the "punishment they deserve." Police say they arrested some of the men before the attack could occur. It appears the planned attack may have been in reaction to the recent death of Swedish asylum worker Alexandra Mezher, who was killed last week at a center for unaccompanied minors.
