Sweden murder probe after refugee centre death

Swedish police on Sunday launched a murder investigation after a young woman was found dead at a shelter housing asylum-seekers.

The 25-year-old was found in a room at the centre in Mariannelund in southeastern Sweden, five months after a young asylum-seeker allegedly stabbed to death a refugee centre worker in southwestern Molndal.

“The circumstances and the evidence found at the site raise suspicions that she was murdered,” police said in a statement, without indicating whether the victim was an asylum-seeker or employee.

However, sources told Aftonbladet newspaper that they did not think it was someone who worked at the centre.
