- EXCLUSIVE: Happened near Rinkeby, part of ‘no go zone’ mentioned by Trump
- Policeman Abdallah Ahmed said on social media: ‘Some people will never learn’

- Officers believed to be involved in operation to arrest 17-year-old and his mother
Police officers responding to the Stockholm terror atrocity were attacked by a gang of youths who pelted them with stones last night, Swedish policemen have said.
The attack happened last night near Rinkeby, part of the ‘immigrant no-go zone’ that gained notoriety when President Trump referred to it in a controversial speech in February.
It is thought that the officers were taking part in an operation to arrest a 17-year-old and his mother at an address linked to the 39-year-old prime suspect.
Both have since been released without charge.
‘During the night my colleagues were exposed to stone throwing in [the suburb of] Tensta, in the middle of an ongoing terror operation.
‘Some people will never learn,’ Abdallah Ahmed, a police officer, said in a social media post.
‘To terror I want to say one thing, in pure Swedish: go to hell. My thoughts go to those affected in every way.’
Mr Ahmed also posted a picture of policemen drawing their weapons in the street, accompanied by a blue-and-white Swedish flag with a thin blue line running through it
He added: ‘Do not pray for Sweden. Stand up for Sweden, fight for Sweden and die for Sweden.’
A police officer working in the same unit, who did not want to be named, confirmed to MailOnline separately that the attack had taken place.
Another policewoman commented: ‘You are fantastic. I wish I was working with you yesterday. I am so proud to be a police officer.’
Mr Ahmed also posted a picture of policemen drawing their weapons in the street, accompanied by a blue-and-white Swedish flag with a thin blue line running through it.
Earlier today, at the address near Tensta that was raided last night, the 17-year-old who had been arrested denied any connection to the 39-year-old terrorist.
‘I don’t know him, I have had nothing to do with him and he has nothing to do with our family,’ he told MailOnline.
It is understood that the terrorist was registered to the address and his post was delivered there.
