Sweden: Neo-Nazis charged with rioting (and antisemitic hate speech)

The riots had nothing to do with Jews.

The Local reports:
Charges were filed on Monday against people who took part in a violent riot in Stockholm's Kärrtorp suburb in December last year. Four of the suspects were charged with violent rioting (våldsamt upplopp) and hate speech (hets mot folkgrupp) and another three were charged with instigating violent rioting. According to the indictment, several of those charged threw bottles, rocks, and firecrackers.
What type of hate speech?

Radio Sweden adds a few more details: One person made disparaging remarks against Jews, raised his hand in a Nazi salute and yelled "Adolph Hitler".
