Sweden's security service, SAPO, said on Thursday it was raising its assessment of the level of threat against Sweden to 4 on a scale of 5 amid mounting international tension over the burning of copies of the Koran at demonstrations in the Nordic country.

"The threat against Sweden has gradually changed and the threat of attacks from actors within violent Islamism has increased during the year," the security service said in a statement.
