Alleged refugees threaten to jump off ferry in Sweden unless taken to nation of their choice

While thousands of refugees are risking death to get into Sweden, there are several who are apparently ready to risk their life to get out.

That was the scene at 7pm on Thursday night, when emergency services were called to Trelleborg, on the southern coast of Sweden, after learning that refugees had threatened to leap from a ferry bound that was harboured at the port.

Coast guards, sea rescue services, and ambulances were all at the scene.

“They threatened to jump into the water because they didn’t want to be registered in Sweden,” Arvid Tedvik of the local coast guard told the TT news agency.
