Members of the Swedish Jewish community have expressed sadness after an attack on a synagogue in the city of Malmö.
Security has been stepped up after a bomb threat was left at the synagogue and the following day a firecracker exploded outside, shattering three windows.
It was reportedly the second threat to the synagogue in as many weeks.
In March 2009 there were violent anti-Israel demonstrations in Malmö when an Israeli tennis team arrived to play Sweden in the Davis Cup.
