STOCKHOLM (AP) - February 27, 2014

Police spokesman Ulf Lindgren says staff at the job center alerted police Wednesday after several thousand people showed up to an event where jobseekers would have a chance to meet with potential employers. He said many people were upset but no arrests were made.

Clas Olsson, acting director general of the employment service, said he deeply regrets the mishap and wishes to send his apologies to all those affected.
