And more than 3,000 migrants are still living illegally in the Swedish capital alone.

Akilov is believed to have carried out a reconnaissance of his route just days earlier.
The failed asylum seeker had been given four weeks to leave Sweden in December after his final appeal failed.
Now Mr Löfven has pledged to crackdown on illegal immigration – vowing to deport migrants who’s asylum applications fail immediately.
He said: “Sweden will never go back to the [mass migration] we had in autumn 2015, never.

“This makes me feel enormously frustrated. If you have been denied a visa you are supposed to leave the country.”
Akilov, 39, had previously expressed support for Islamic State – telling police he carried out the attack on their orders.

Police added a bomb, which was found in the truck after the attack when it failed to detonate, contained gas canisters, chemicals and nails.
Mr Löfven added: “Terrorists want us to be afraid, want us to change our behaviour, want us to not live our lives normally, but that is what we’re going to do.
“Terrorists can never defeat Sweden, never.”
