Thirty-five asylum-seekers have asked to be relocated from a refugee housing facility
in southern Sweden because they believe it's haunted by ghosts, officials said Wednesday.
The asylum-seekers were spooked by flickering lights and noise in the plumbing system[...]
Petersson said 35 of the 58 people living in the shelter came to the agency's office in the
nearby town of Alvesta on Tuesday, demanding to be relocated. They reluctantly returned
to the shelter at the end of the day after being told there were no ghosts —
and no alternative housing available — Petersson said.
"I know that in their faith there is a different view on spirituality," he said.
"We were responsive to them but somewhere you have to use your
common sense and believe in science."[...]
Hamid Alojaili, a Syrian resident of the Grannaforsa facility, told local newspaper Smålandsposten
"we are sure" that the building is haunted.
"Doors are getting reopened by themselves," he said in English in a video clip posted on the paper's
website. "And there is no one outside."
Many get the feeling they are not alone even in the bathroom.
