The number of threats to the Swedish Jewish community has doubled since the attacks in Paris and the killing of four Jews at a kosher supermarket, a community representative said Thursday.
"The threats have at least doubled in Sweden," a representative from Council of Jewish Communities in Sweden, Lena Posner-Körösi, told AFP.
Security was increased around Jewish institutions, especially in the Swedish capital. "The Säpo (intelligence services) and the police believe that we must have more protection," said Posner-Körösi. "They show a very good understanding of our situation. This is very important because our members are worried," she added.
