'Racial motive' in Sweden shootings

Police in the city of Malmo investigate 16 gun attacks on dark-skinned immigrants.

    Police in Sweden say a series of shootings in the city of Malmo may have been racially motivated.

    Investigators believe that there may be a common link among up to 16 gun attacks on immigrants over the last year in the city - with reports that there have been another two incidents over the past day.

    The latest victims were two women who were wounded after a bullet was fired through the window of their ground-floor flat.
