Leaked Report Shows Increase In No-Go Zones in Sweden

Jun 15, 2017

The number of no-go zones in Sweden rose from 15 to 23 in two years according to a leaked report. No-go zones tend to be neighborhoods dominated by migrants. The areas see extensive drug trafficking, gang crime, and religious extremism. Information regarding the updated list of no-go zones was supposed to be published, but the national police chief stopped its publication. Recently postal deliveries to several dozen homes in a Stockholm suburb were stopped because the area was considered unsafe. Construction on a police station was suspended in March because contractors were not willing to send their workers to the unsafe area.
