STOCKHOLM (AP) — Swedish police say they are searching for a suspected arsonist believed to have torched a Muslim school before making off in a car that almost ran over a police officer.

Malmo police spokesman Clas Svensson says the fire late Saturday in the southwestern city was under control and no one was hurt.

Mia Sandgren, a regional police spokeswoman told the Swedish news agency TT that a patrol car tried to stop the suspected getaway vehicle but it failed to stop and officers fired at the vehicle. Police were still searching for the suspected arsonist on Sunday.

There have been several attacks against schools and refugee centers in the Scandinavian country which has one of the highest per capita migrant intakes in Europe.
