News reports say 55-year-old woman and her 28-year-old son we killed while shopping in the cutlery section of an IKEA store.
The attackers are from the east African nation of Eritrea and were living in government-sponsored housing for refugees.
• Imagine you are a Swede and receive a visit from the police informing you that your wife and son were stabbed to death by migrants from Africa.
The report speculated that the assailants were mentally disturbed.
I speculate we are crazy for allowing them into our countries.
• Authorities in Sweden seem more intent on protecting the identify of killer migrants than protecting the lives of ethnic Swedes.

Swedish police say the two men suspected of fatally stabbing two people yesterday (Aug.10) at an Ikea store near Stockholm are immigrant asylum seekers from Eritrea. The men, who live in a facility for asylum seekers in a nearby town, are being held in custody. One of them sustained critical stab wounds and underwent two surgeries. It is unclear how he was injured, and many crucial details of the incident, including motive, are still unknown.
The people killed in the stabbings were a 55-year-old mother and her 28-year-old son, with no apparent connection to the suspects. Swedish authorities said there were “no political overtones” in the assault—an apparent attempt to rule out any intent of terrorism.
Police sources told the local daily VLT that the suspects seemed to have used knives from the Ikea shelves for the attack, and the Ikea outlet in question has temporarily stopped selling knives, the store manager told news agency TT.
The lawyer of the uninjured suspect, a 23-year-old man, told TT that he was innocent as was “in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
“He has been there [Ikea] but he didn’t do anything,” said attorney Maria Wilhelmsson.
Sweden accepts large numbers of asylum seekers, with Eritreans the second-largest group of applicants behind refugees from Syria. Swedish media have speculated that the two suspects could have suffered from mental illness or psychological trauma stemming from their experiences in the war-torn country.
