Have you heard of Husby?

If you rely upon the BBC for your news then you won't have. The BBC show seven articles with mentions of Husby, none more recent than June 2012 and all seven relating to people with the surname Husby in the Breivik story. If you click on the 'Elsewhere on the web' link though you get some rather more up to date stories. For there has been some major rioting going on in Husby, a suburb of Stockholm, for a few days now. The BBC's top link is to the Huffington Post which manages to avoid the elephant in the room with a story just talking of 'youths' and 'immigrants' although they did drop a clue with their choice of spokesman for the 'community', one Rami Al-Khamisi from the organization Megafonen, 'which represents citizens in Stockholm's suburbs.'

The Australian Herald Sun has a rather more informative headline 'From the streets of Muslim Sweden' .

100 or more cars torched and the streets of part of a European city filled with flames and blood but the BBC just don't want to tell us, why?
