The Swedish Foreign Minister has claimed her country is facing collapse due to the mass influx of refugees as the migrant crisis deepens.

Margot Wallstrom has said that Sweden cannot cope with taking in refugees at its current level, without it affecting services.

She says that Stockholm will now have to pressure the European Union in a bid to force other member states to share the burden of those coming from the Middle East, mainly Syria.

It is expected that Sweden will take in around 190,000 migrants by the end of 2015. In the first nine months of the year, more than 73,000 people applied for asylum in Sweden.

And Mrs Wallstrom said in an interview: ‘I think most people feel that we cannot maintain a system where perhaps 190,000 people will arrive every year – in the long run, our system will collapse.

And that welcome is not going to receive popular support.

No one was seriously injured, although some of the 14 migrants living there suffered slight smoke inhalation. They were swiftly rehoused.

In the central town of Arboga, housed two Eritrean migrants who were accused of a knife attack at an Ikea store three days earlier that left a 55-year-old woman and her 28-year-old son dead.

Sweden, which is home to 9.8 million people, is one of the European Union countries that has taken in the largest number of refugees as a proportion of its population.

  1. The day had better come soon when Swedes are sufficiently fed-up with Muslim crazies in their midst and do as their Norwegian neighbors finally had the belatedly good sense to do. Recently, Norway deported over 800 Muslims and if Norway knows what’s good for it, many more Muslims are scheduled to return to anywhere in Islam. How stupid were these Scandinavian governments in the first place!
    All they imported were drug-pushers, rapists, and Muslims living on government hand-outs while hating the native Scandinavians for their gracious support.
    What possibly can Sweden be waiting for? It should realize that the UN’s opinions amount to more distress for Sweden. Sweden should take stock of how many UN nations are Islam-influenced and get on with shaking its disgraceful reputation as Europe’s rape capitol by deporting, deporting, and more deporting.
