In September 2019 in the Swedish city of Gothenburg police were called to a parking garage where a suspected explosive device was found. An hour later another suspected bomb was found near a police station in the same city.

Two people have were arrested by the police in connection with the explosives, who according to police press spokesperson Stefan Gustafsson were “basically caught red handed with explosives”.

A source told the Swedish newspaper Nyheter Idag that one of the arrested men is a well known far-left extremist. He has previously been jailed for violent riots after participating in the infamous Gothenburg riots in 2001 where he was caught on video throwing rocks at the police.

He has also previously been convicted on drug charges and is also now being prosecuted on more drug charges.

Earlier in 2019, a right-wing politician for the Alternative For Sweden party was attacked by a far-left extremist in his home. The politician was at home with his kids when someone detonated an explosive device on his front door.

According to Europol, there was 27 far-left terror attacks in Europe in 2016, whereas there was only 1 far-right terror attack in the same year. Surprisingly, very few media outlets in Europe have reported on the threat of far-left extremism.
