Sweden is in turmoil over the refugee crisis. Dozens of facilities meant to house asylum seekers have been attacked by suspected arsonists, with the latest incident reported on Saturday.

An empty building was torched to the ground in Vastra Gotaland, in the southwest of the country, and the police are saying they suspect foul play. Several other buildings in a cluster were damaged.

Anti-immigrant sentiment has been growing stronger in Sweden over the past few years as reflected by the growing representation of far-right parties in legislatures, Adrian Groglopo, social science professor at the University of Gothenburg, told RT.

“The country is polarizing. On the one hand you have all those people who don’t want immigrants and refugees, but on the other hand we have a strong part of the population that are helping immigrants and asylum seekers,” he said.

“These terrorist attacks [carried out] by the far-right groups are of course shaking the basis of Swedish society,” he added, referring to the arson attacks on refugee centers.
