A Swedish man has been convicted of two murders and four attemped murders after a 12-month shooting spree that targeted immigrants in the southern city of Malmo.

Peter Mangs, 40, was arrested in 2010. He will probably be sentenced in September after a psychiatric evaluation.

The case highlights racial tensions in the Nordic region, still traumatised by Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik.
