Migrant killed in brawl in Sweden

STOCKHOLM: A 19-year-old asylum-seeker was stabbed to death on Friday in a brawl at a Swedish refugee hostel. Police said three asylum-seekers had been arrested but declined to release the nationalities of the casualty or the three suspects. Police were alerted to a fight at the Stora Asylum Centre outside of the town of Lindesberg, some 160 km west of Stockholm, at about 5:15am (0415 GMT) on Friday. The victim was stabbed in the throat and rushed to hospital, but died shortly after his arrival, said police. Two other murders have occurred at Swedish refugee centres this year.
