Far-right wins parliamentary seats

Political party critical of Muslims and immigrants wins parliamentary seats for the first time.

    The Sweden Democrats, a party that has been compared to the Nazis and labelled as racist, has won seats in the Swedish parliament for the first time.

    The anti-immigration party is the latest in a number of far-right organisations to gain representation across Europe.

    Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports from Stockholm, the Swedish capital.
