Sweden: Police: "The number of Islamic extremists soars from hundreds to thousands in just a few years"

(Stockholm) The head of the Swedish security service (SAPO) Anders Thornberg has stated that the number of people in Sweden with extremist Islamic views has grown from a couple of hundreds to several thousands in just a few years:
"We have never seen anything like it before" and propaganda from the Islamic State group is a key factor.
