The building in Vivalla was a sunni religious centre. The foundation says on its website it was visited by thousands per month, including people from 25 nationalities.

Swedish police said Tuesday they arrested a man suspected of involvement in a fire that partly destroyed a mosque west of Stockholm.

Police said firefighters worked overnight to extinguish the fire that started Tuesday at 2 .a.m. local time in Orebro, about 160 kilometers (100 miles) west of Stockholm. No one was injured in the blaze.

Mosque spokesman Jamal Lamhamdi told local newspaper Nerikes Allehanda that it was “a sad day for Muslims in Orebro and in Sweden.”

Muslims bravely confront British police officers who rudely entered their mosque.

Investigator Lars Bergman said the suspect, who was not identified, was arrested on suspicion of arson early Tuesday. He declined to comment on possible motives behind the fire.

Sweden has seen growing anti-migrant sentiment and an increase in xenophobic attacks as asylum-seekers flooded into the country in recent years.

In January, a fire caused major damage at a mosque near Stockholm.
