Snow Continues to Vex Swedish Commuters

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Feb. 24 (UPI) — Police had to restore order at a Stockholm bus terminal Tuesday night after continuing bad weather resulted in long service delays, officials said.

Officials told the Swedish news agency Tidningarnas Telegrambyra that about tempers flared among approximately 1,000 commuters who were having little luck getting home as buses to the suburbs became fewer and farther between.

“There are no reports of actual fighting, but there was a lot of anger,” police spokesman Ulf Lindgren told the news agency.

The government recently deployed troops to assist with snow removal along the rail lines serving the capital.

The weather forecast called for more snowfall across Sweden during the weekend.
