Police in Sweden are investigating letters mysteriously delivered to dozens of random neighbourhoods, including the capital Stockholm, threatening to murder “non-believers” in a terrifying campaign of violence.
As reported online by the UK newspaper Express, Sweden is now on lockdown after the chilling letters pledged to behead innocent civilians and then “bomb your rotten corpses afterwards”.
Intelligence officials confirmed they are investigating the horrifying threats – which were signed by Islamic State – as a state of fear gripped the nation.
The letters state: “In the name of Allah, the merciful, full of grace. You who are not believers will be decapitated in three days in your own house. We will bomb your rotten corpses afterwards. You must choose between these three choices: 1. Convert to Islam. 2. Pay the jizya [religious tax] for protection. 3. Or else, you will be decapitated.”
Authorities are reportedly still investigating whether the threats contained in the letters are real, but said they were taking them seriously.
