A man was beaten severely for hanging an Israeli flag outside his window in the Swedish city of Malmo, police said.
Several unidentified men assaulted the 38-year-old man with metal bars after they hurled a stone at his window on Sunday evening, the Svenska Dagbladet daily reported Monday. The victim, who was taken to the hospital, was not identified by name.
After the stone hit the window, the man went downstairs and was assaulted, according to Malmo Police spokeswoman Linda Pleym. She said his injuries were serious but not life threatening.
