Summary of Disinformation

The Swedish city of Malmö is plagued by crime due to the high number of refugees, 50 murders were recorded during last year and the unemployment is 63%. There are official no-go zones where the police does not go.

Disproof

During last year, 12 - not 50 - murders were recorded in the city, which is in fact an unusually high number. There is no evidence that this has anything to do with refugees. The unemployment rate is not 63% - thats the employment rate, the unemployment is in fact 10,5%. The disinformation concerning no-go zones has been debunked before and is often repeated, there are no official no-go zones according to the Swedish authorities. Further debunking of that claim by Buzzfeed bzfd.it/2lBQfdQ, .
