In the Stockholm suburb of Botkyrka, a powerful blast at a Turkish cultural centre destroyed two offices on Wednesday evening, leaving broken glass and blackened walls.

It came just four days after a man was shot at a pro-Kurdish rally in the same neighbourhood south-west of Stockholm.

“I have many young people who are worried now, they say ‘maybe the Turks will come to my house and shoot me’,” said Yilmas Zengin, a 55-year-old of Turkish and Kurdish origin who runs the nearby Botkyrka Youth Centre.

“We worry, more than anything, that the violence will increase,” he said outside the centre.
