Swedish police on Sunday arrested two people and detained around 10 people after a violent riot broke out at a protest involving a burning of the Holy Quran, police said.

The protest was organised by Iraqi refugee Salwan Momika, whose protests — which have included public desecrations of the holy book — have sparked outrage across the Middle East.

Sunday’s protest was held in a square in the southern city of Malmo, which has a large immigrant population, and according to public broadcaster SVT around 200 people had showed up to watch.

“Some onlookers have shown upset feelings, after the organiser burned writings,” police said in a statement.

According to police, the event had ended after the organiser left but a group of people remained at the scene.

About 10 people were detained for disturbing the public order and another two were arrested, suspected of violent rioting.
