Cars were torched and police faced stone-throwing youths in Stockholm’s immigrant-dominated suburbs early Sunday, but the nightly riots that have raged for a week appeared to be easing, police said. A handful of cars were set ablaze in various suburbs.

“When it comes to car fires, there have been a few, spread out in various locations, but not as many as in recent days,” Stockholm police spokesman Lars Bystroem told Swedish Radio.

A police patrol in Vaarberg, a suburb south of the capital, was attacked by rock-throwing youths, but no one was injured and no arrests were made.
