A report released by the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) on Friday expressed repeated concern over the level of racism in Sweden.
The report pointed to "racist hate speech against Afro-Swedes, Jews, Muslims and Roma", a problem that the committee said is particularly prevalent "during election campaigns, as well as in the media and on the internet."
"The Committee is particularly concerned with reports of arson attacks against mosques and reception centres for asylum seekers," the report added.
Fires at asylum facilities around Sweden have occurred on several occasions since the number of migrants arriving in the country peaked in 2015. At least 112 blazes occurred at asylum accommodation centres, or planned accommodation centres, across Sweden in the following year, according to national police statistics.
