Sweden: Failed Eritrean asylum-seeker indicted for stabbing of two people to death
Swedish prosecutors have indicted an Eritrean asylum-seeker on two counts of murder for the stabbing deaths of a 55-year-old woman and her 27-year-old son at an Ikea furniture store in August.

Just before the attacks, the man had learned that his application for asylum was rejected.

Prosecutors said the man used kitchen knives from the store in Vasteras, central Sweden, to stab the two victims. He then slashed himself in the stomach.

Chief prosecutor Eva Moren told reporters that the man had confessed to the Aug. 10 attacks, saying he had been thinking about killing someone or himself if he wasn't allowed to stay in Sweden. She didn't identify him, in line with Swedish custom.

Moren said he chose the victims randomly. His lawyer didn't immediately return calls seeking comment.

Sex Assaults by Refugees Drive Women Staff From German Asylum Center
A cleaner at a refugee center in Bavaria was subjected to sexual assault on a daily basis from two asylum-seekers living at the center, which has decided to employ only male cleaners as a result.

Two asylum seekers at an asylum reception center in Kitzingen sexually attacked a female member of the cleaning staff every day for more than a week, compelling the institution to employ only male cleaners.

On Wednesday Bayerischer Rundfunk [BR] reported that two male asylum seekers aged 38 and 52 had been detained after the woman finally summoned up the courage to report the attacks, which took place between October 1 and October 10, to her employer, and to the police.

A spokesperson for the Kitzingen District Office told BR that as a result of the attacks, the contracted cleaning company responsible for the asylum center will send only male cleaners from next week.

"Until then, cleaners will be accompanied by the security service when cleaning the showers and toilets. In addition, showers and toilets will be closed for the duration of the cleaning," said the local authority.

The reports of sexual violence committed by asylum seekers in Kitzingen follow previous allegations of abuse in other detention centers in Germany. Earlier this month German newspaper Der Spiegel reported that 15 women and children living in a reception center in Hessen, home to 500 asylum seekers, reported being sexually abused at the center.
