Some minutes before 2am the night between July 22nd and the 23rd a big explosion was reported outside the synagogue in MalmÃ¶. Residents living close to the synagogue reported that an explosion was heard and there was also a very bright flash. Spokesperson for the police, GÃ¶ran Billberg commented that the explosion most probably was due to “some kind of firecracker”, and did not characterize the explosive as a bomb.
