SECURITY WARNING: THOUSANDS of violent Islamist extremists living in Sweden [video]

The number of radical militant extremists in Sweden has grown from a few hundred to at least a thousand, a top security official warned.

A 2010 report said around 200 extremists with terrorist sympathies were living in the country.
But this has now risen to the thousands just seven years later.

Säpo chief Anders Thornberg said: “We would say that it has gone from hundreds to thousands now.”

And he added the vast majority of radicals in the country support violent Islamist ideologies.

He went on to warn: “We used to have different circles. We had radicalised people from North Africa, the Middle East and Somalia, but they were all separate.”

“We have never seen anything like it before. This is the ‘new normal’. It is an historic challenge that extremist circles are growing.”
