Abandoned Swedish game to be replayed without fans

By Philip O'Connor STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - The Swedish top-flight game between Djurgarden and Mjallby will be replayed in an empty stadium from the point when it was abandoned on Monday, the Football Association (SvFF) has decided.

Swedish subway migration controls draw social media ire

An open letter to Sweden's justice minister, accusing authorities of using racial profiling in their hunt for illegal immigrants, stirred heated debate Thursday after going viral on social media websites. In a letter published in daily Dagens Nyheter, author Jonas Hassen Khemiri, whose father is of Tunisian origin, asked Beatrice Ask to "change skins" with him for a day. The letter came days after passengers in Stockholm's subway system claimed they were targeted in ID checks because of the colour of their skin, as Swedish police launched a crackdown on illegal immigration.
