Refugee children(...) left to their own devices for up to two hours at a time

Oh, how scandalous...But wait, can these men really be classified as children?

Refugee children is a well known phenomenon in Sweden, more than anything because they often have the appearance of 20-30 years olds.

Royal enrichment

- Somali refugee child stole Princess Christina's jewels

The refugee child, "best friend" of Christina's husband, had been invited to their home, and at one occasion found his way into Christina's private rooms.

After arriving in Sweden in 2009 the young man had befriended the couple and was taken into their private homes, and despite their love and support, the Somali committed several cases of crime including robbery and drugs.

One of the jewels which was stolen by this Somali during first half of 2012, was a gift from Haile Selassie

Funny, how Somalis find their way into the Scandinavian royal palaces. The Norwegian king had one of uncertain identity as an employee at a time, and one of the King's Guardsmen died as an Al Shabaab soldier in his home country.
