A fire in a mosque in Eslov, southern Sweden, was detected at around 3:15 a.m. local time (2:15 GMT) on Monday. Emergency services have stopped the spread of the fire, believed to have been caused by a flammable liquid, according to reports.
Police have not officially confirmed arson, and investigations continue.
The incident comes after a mosque in Eskilstuna, central Sweden, was set on fire on December 25, injuring five people.

After the incident, government officials urged Swedes to reject xenophobia and protect religious freedom.
