SWEDISH COPS TOLD U.S. JOURNALISTS TO LEAVE NO-GO ZONE RINKEBY : ‘MEN STARTED MASKING UP AND FOLLOWING US
- ‘Several men started masking up and following us. Police told us to leave and had to escort us to our car,’ he wrote in a Twitter post on Wednesday.
( Daily Mail ) On Wednesday, Pool and Molli traveled to Rinkeby, where riots broke out after President Donald Trump warned of migrant problems in Sweden last month. Nine out of ten residents in Rinkeby are immigrants.
‘You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden,’ Trump said in a speech in February. ‘Sweden. Who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible.’
During a video uploaded to Pool’s YouTube channel, he and Molli are seen speaking to a third man, before they say police have told them to leave the area.
‘Several men started masking up and following us. Police told us to leave and had to escort us to our car,’ he wrote in a Twitter post on Wednesday.
Molli reiterated Pool’s thoughts in her own Twitter posts on Wednesday.
‘Wasn’t expecting such a quick reaction of masking up as soon as we got to the Rinkeby center. Camera was down at my side most of the time,’ Molli wrote. ‘we asked an officer if he thought we could get an interview from a local, he advised it would probably start trouble.’
