More than a dozen cars have been torched and buildings set ablaze by young people in Stockholm's immigrant-filled suburbs, on the fifth consecutive night of unrest in Sweden's capital.
Police in the southwestern French city of Nantes again clashed with protesters overnight. The demonstrations followed a deadly shooting by police of a man during a stop-and-search.
After changing his story, a French policeman has been charged with manslaughter in the shooting death of a 22-year-old black man in Nantes. Following days of unrest, fresh clashes have erupted between police and youth.
Swedish authorities have confirmed the arrest of a 39-year-old Uzbek man on suspicion of "terrorist crime." Police are also investigating a device found in the driver's seat of the truck which killed four people.
The violent arrest of a young black man has triggered several nights of riots in France. The unrest shows youths in the country's suburbs feel unfairly treated - more so than in the recent past.
