    Sarah Ericsson's boyfriend hosted a 21st birthday party for her at his home and decorated the windows with 21 balloons. The balloons faced inwards.

    That proved important later when a whole lot of police vehicles turned up outside boyfriend Fabien Akesson's home in Karlskrona, Sweden. A neighbour had seen the balloons from outside and mistaken the backward 21 for IS - and presumed someone was celebrating the terror organization Islamic State, with glitzy decorations.

    Police didn't arrest anyone, but they did make the young couple take down all the balloons.

    I do not think the Islamic State is the party balloon type.
