Swedish court overturns police decision to ban Qur’an burning protests

STOCKHOLM (AFP): A Swedish court Tuesday overturned a police decision to ban two Qur’an burning protests, saying security risk concerns were not enough to limit the right to demonstrate.

The “police authority has not had sufficient support for its decisions,” judge Eva-Lotta Hedin said in a statement, referring to planned protests outside the Turkish and Iraqi embassies in Stockholm.
