Swedish police raid church camp, arrest migrants

August 28, 2017

Swedish police raided a church camp on August 25 and arrested five families on suspicion that they are present in the nation illegally.

“There are no protected zones according to Swedish law,” a police spokeswoman said.

A media report described the camp as “a family camp for refugees organized by the Swedish church,” presumably the Church of Sweden, the Lutheran body that was formerly the state church.
