Trade minister Ann Linde and other members of Sweden’s “first feminist government in the world” walked past Iranian President Rouhani yesterday as they covered their hair in compliance with Iran’s compulsory hijab law, despite Stockholm’s promise to promote “a gender equality perspective” internationally, and to adopt a “feminist foreign policy” in which “equality between women and men is a fundamental aim.”
A teenager has been stabbed by an attacker wearing a clown mask in western Sweden, police have said. Hysteria surrounding a wave of creepy so-called 'killer clowns' has spread in the last few months, from the southern US states across the UK and Europe. In the latest 'killer clown' incident on Thursday (13 October), a youth who was born in 1997, was left with minor injuries to the shoulder, after going outside for a cigarette in Varberg - roughly 50 miles south of Gothenburg - where they were confronted by a masked attacker.
“I don’t use cash any more, for anything,” said Louise Henriksson, 26, a teaching assistant. “You just don’t need it. Shops don’t want it; lots of banks don’t even have it. Even for a candy bar or a paper, you use a card or phone.” Swedish buses have not taken cash for years, it is impossible to buy a ticket on the Stockholm metro with cash, retailers are legally entitled to refuse coins and notes, and street vendors – and even churches – increasingly prefer card or phone payments. According to central bank the Riksbank, cash transactions made up barely 2% of the value of all payments made in Sweden last year – a figure some see dropping to 0.5% by 2020. In shops, cash is now used for barely 20% of transactions, half the number five years ago, and way below the global average of 75%.
Masked men attack 60 Minutes crew in Sweden Veteran reporter Liz Hayes and a small Australian crew were travelling through the Rinkeby district of Västerort, Stockholm, one of the poorer neighbourhoods in which 89.1 per cent are first or second generation migrants, when a group of unnamed assailants turned on the television crew. Channel Nine last night confirmed early reports out of Stockholm that the group was confronted by a group of locals, some reportedly masked, who had objections to 60 Minutes filming in the region. “Liz Hayes and a 60 Minutes crew are currently on assignment in Europe where they are reporting a story about the migrant crisis,” a Nine spokesman said. “In a suburb of Stockholm yesterday (Monday) they were confronted by a group who objected to them filming. There was a series of scuffles and the police were called.”
A German water park that has been the scene of two sex attacks by migrants have announced plans to segregate men and women.
The plan will involve banning men and teenage boys from using the waterslides at certain times when only women, girls and very young boys will be allowed access.
It comes days after police arrested two asylum seekers from Afghanistan for a sex attack on two girls on the slides at the Arriba water park in Norderstedt in the Schleswig-Holstein region.
