School to Reopen Next Week
Authorities are calling it a racist hate crime. Many of the school’s students are immigrants and Pettersson methodically attacked dark-skinned individuals.
Lindström Sundefors said that the around 80 people working at Kronan are coping with the tragic and rare school attack in different ways. But it has left them all shocked and devastated.

When Lavin Eskander’s family describes his cheerful personality and his passion for music, they switch back and forth between present and past tense, as if they haven’t fully accepted that he’s not coming back.
The 20-year-old teacher’s assistant was stabbed to death Thursday as he tried to shield children at a school in southern Sweden from a masked, sword-wielding attacker. Fifteen-year-old Ahmed Hassan was also stabbed to death and two other people seriously injured in what police are calling a racist hate crime...
“My brother wanted to be an artist,” Leith Eskander, 22, told The Associated Press in an interview Sunday. “He wanted to be famous and spread his songs and his love to the people.”
Victim Lavin Eskandar, 20

Deadly School Stabbing Highlights Racial Tensions in Sweden
A British teacher at the Montessori school opposite Kronan, Jo-Anne Frampton, said the attack had been "just a matter of time."
Frampton, who has lived in the city for 18 years, said her initial reaction was shock, and then her school was inundated by calls from worried parents.
"We were all worried and afraid," she told The Associated Press on Saturday. "But the attack isn't really surprising. There's a lot of racial tension here, and it's been growing since more and more migrants have been arriving."

Sweden has seen a spate of at least 20 arson attacks in the past seven months on asylum centers or buildings being renovated to house refugees. Early Saturday, another blaze — considered by investigators again to be arson — destroyed a house intended for refugees in Eskiltuna, near Stockholm.
"Once again, we have experienced a hate crime ... Our country is burning. Asylum dwellings are in flames," Svenska Dagbladet, one of Sweden's largest newspapers, said in an editorial.
"The hatred against immigrants spreads like wildfire."
