Anti-immigration sentiment fuels far-right Sweden Democrats party
Date created :
Since 2015, some 300,000 asylum seekers have arrived in Sweden. That's now a major campaign issue ahead of elections on Sunday. While the Scandinavian country has long touted itself as one of the most liberal in Europe, the far-right Sweden Democrats party, which has roots in the neo-Nazi movement, may scoop as much as 20 percent of the vote. Its main platform: opposing immigration. Our correspondents travelled to the southern city of Sölvesborg to see how and why the party became so popular.
