An explosion so large it could be heard several kilometres away shook central Malmö last night. Some kind of explosive device was detonated by 2 people at the entrance to the city centre courthouse shortly before 11:30 Sunday night.
WSJ A justice center with multiple departments including a courthouse and police offices was bombed late Sunday night in the Swedish town of Malmö, police said.
An explosive device was placed outside the entrance to the ‘Rattscentrum’ district court and police building in central Malmo
The blast significantly damaged the entrance to the district court and shattered the windows and balcony doors of several nearby buildings with private residences. One woman suffered cuts from broken glass but no one was seriously injured in the blast, said Jimmy Modin, a spokesman for the local police.
It was the second bomb attack this year on the justice center located in central Malmö, Sweden’s third-biggest city. In February, explosives caused a similar amount of damage on the same entrance of the building and police are checking to see if there is a connection between the incidents, Mr. Modin said.
