The restaurant "Vitt Hem – Qarabağ" owned by an Azerbaijani businessman operating in Sweden was burned down, the owner of the restaurant, Kenan Hajiakberoglu, told Report's European bureau.
He noted that an unknown person or persons throw a molotov cocktail at a newly opened restaurant in Gothenburg.
"The police informed me at night. I came to the area immediately. The fire was already extinguished. Police officers did not allow to approach the area. Firefighters and police suspect deliberate arson of the restaurant, and an investigation is underway," Hajiakberoglu said.
