STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – Sweden will do whatever it takes, including sending in the army, to end a wave of gang violence that has seen a string of deadly shootings, Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said in Wednesday.

In 2016, the latest year for which official statistics are available, 106 people were murdered in Sweden, a country of 10 million.
