Stockholm burns as rioters battle police after three days of violence in immigrant 'ghetto'

•, By Becky Evans
 Hundreds of youths attacked police and emergency services last night as rioting in Stockholm's poor immigrant suburbs escalated.

Yesterday's violence, which has intensified over three days of rioting, saw gangs torch dozens of cars and attack two schools and a police station.

It is Sweden's worst disorder in years and has shocked the country and provoked a debate on how Sweden is coping with youth unemployment and an influx of immigrants.
The disorder has intensified despite a call for calm from Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt.

Last night, rioters attacked the police station in the Jakosberg area in the northwest of the city and set fire to 30 cars.
