Syrian refugees seek safety in Sweden

With about 1,300 refugees arriving every week, there are concerns that resources may become stretched.

    Since August, around 1,300 Syrians have arrived in Sweden every week, and the number is steadily increasing.

    Sweden has a history of generous laws for asylum seekers but with no sign that Syria's conflict is about to end, there are concerns that resources may become stretched.
