More than 100 cars have been set alight in across Sweden overnight, as gangs of masked youths went rampaging in a series of arson attacks believed to have been coordinated on social media.

Dozens of vehicles burned in Sweden’s four major cities – Stockholm, Malmo, Gothenburg and Uppsala – on Monday evening and in the early hours of Tuesday.

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven reacted with anger and did not hold back during a radio interview on Tuesday morning.

‘I’m furious, for real. My question to these people is ‘what the f*** are you doing?’,’ he told Sveriges Radio P1.

‘You’re ruining things for yourselves, your parents and your neighbourhoods,’ Lofven said, adding the incident ‘looked very coordinated, almost like a military operation’.

‘Sweden has tolerated this for too long. This must end now,’ Ulf Kristersson, leader of the conservative opposition party, the Moderates, wrote on his Facebook account.

In Gothenburg and surrounding towns of Lysekil, Falkenberg and Trollhättan, a total of around 100 cars have been demolished.

In Stockholm, and Uppsala, some 45 miles north of the capital, a total of 13 cars were set alight in a handful locations on Tuesday morning.

Gothenburg police say they have identified some of the culprits and and two people have so far been arrested.

‘We have already started making calls to the parents of the youths who were taking part in this,’ Gothenburg police spokesperson Ulla Brehm told SVT.

‘We chose not to arrest anyone on the spot, but have identified them.’

Ms Brehm could not confirm that the series of identical car fires had been orchestrated via social media but said that ‘the fact that it has been co-ordinated in so many places indicate it’.
