Malmö Nazi attack victim on the mend

The 25-year-old man, whose stabbing by neo-Nazis sparked mass demonstrations across Sweden, has made a strong recovery in hospital and took to social media to thank supporters for campaigning against fascism. Showan Shattak, a well-known fan of Malmö football club, was stabbed in his native city on March 8th after attending a demonstration in support of International Women’s Day. (…) News of the attack sparked revulsion across Sweden, in particular in Shattak’s hometown of Malmö. A week after he was left fighting for his life more than 10,000 locals demonstrated against fascism, while similar rallies were held across the country. “Don’t know what I would have done without all the help and sympathy that I and my family have received recently. The road is punctuated by massive solidarity greetings from friends, comrades, football fans and particularly MFF family.The heat in your action and anti-fascism gives me strength,” he wrote on Facebook.  Shattak was left in a coma after being set upon by a group of neo-Nazis in the popular Möllevångstorget area of the city. Swedish police arrested three men, with ties to The Party of the Swedes, in connection with the incident in a case that also involved Interpol.
