Sweden has a history of openness towards refugees, and long experience integrating people from foreign countries. 600 of them are housed in a ski resort north of the Arctic Circle - a place that couldn’t be any more different to the Middle East.
Sweden has reached the breaking point. The country's migration agency has said it can no longer put a roof over the heads of the high number of people requesting asylum each day. Richard Orange reports from Malmö.
Swedish authorities plan to impose temporary border controls to help the country cope with "record" numbers of refugees, the interior minister says. The minister has also urged EU countries to take "responsibility."
