Swedish mail firm halts deliveries to suburb within notorious migrant ghetto ‘no-go zone’ because it is too dangerous
- PostNord is said to have stopped deliveries in Rinkeby, a district of Stockholm
- Around 120 households will have to pick up their post between 7am and 10am
- This comes after the area had riots February after police arrested a wanted person
A Swedish mail company has halted deliveries in a suburb close to a notorious ‘no-go zone’ because it is now considered too dangerous for their staff.
PostNord is said to have stopped the deliveries in the Rinkeby borough of Stockholm – an area of Sweden which has been plagued with riots in the past.
According to nyheter24, people living in certain areas of Hjulsta, in Rinkeby, will now have to pick up their post between the hours of 7am and 10am.
It is thought around 120 households will be affected.
Sources told the news organisation that the residents were not informed of this change of service by PostNord.
Maria Ibsen, a press officer at PostNord, told nyheter24: ‘It’s been messy in the area and therefore a protective stop [has been put in place] to ensure the safety of our staff.’
However, when contacted by MailOnline, Ms Ibsen claimed the situation had been ‘solved’ and the ‘majority’ of the residents would receive their post today.
In February, police were forced to fire warning shots after a group of rioters began setting fire to cars, throwing stones at officers and looting shops in the district.
Police said in a statement that at least seven or eight cars were burned, which has one of the largest immigrant populations in Stockholm.
A photographer from the Dagens Nyheter newspaper also claimed that he spent a night in hospital after he was assaulted by a group of 15 people in Rinkeby as he attempted to report the unrest.
‘I was hit with a lot of punches and kicks both to my body and my head. I have spent the night in hospital,’ he said.
A shopkeeper was also reportedly beaten while trying to protect his store, while another person was also beaten, with both taken to hospital for treatment.
The disorder reportedly broke out after police arrested a wanted person, believed to be a drug dealer, at the subway station in Rinkeby.
A similar incident took place in 2013 nearby in Husby, where four nights of rioting left hundreds of cars ablaze and saw mobs attacking police with bricks.
The suburb, north of central Stockholm, has a population made up of 75 per cent immigrants.
