Sweden and China have become embroiled in an unlikely diplomatic row after three Chinese tourists were thrown out of a hostel in Stockholm in an argument over check-in times.
Videos showing what China has described as the “brutal mistreatment” of a man and his elderly parents by Swedish police have been viewed more than 100 million people on social media, sparking a heated debate in the Chinese blogosphere .
The incident began innocently enough on 2 September, when a family identified as the Zengs arrived at the Generator Hostel in Stockholm one night before they had booked to stay.
The Zengs reportedly asked to wait out the night on the sofas in the hostel's lobby, but were told they couldn't and were asked to leave. When they objected, hostel staff called the police – at which point videos of the incident show Zeng being carried out by two officers, screaming in English: “This is killing, this is killing.”
Reactions on social media have been divided between those who question the Swedish police's handling of the situation, and those who criticise the behaviour of the Zeng family. At one point in the videos, filmed by passers-by, all three are lying prone on the pavement calling out for “help” as the police officers stand around looking bemused.
The Chinese government, however, is taking the matter very seriously indeed. Two statements have been issued by the Chinese Embassy in Sweden.
One statement explains that China is “deeply appalled and angered by what happened and strongly condemns the behaviour of the Swedish police”.
A blogger wrote a post on WeChat comparing the tourists' behaviour to that of “self-indulgent” Chinese shoppers who kick off their shoes and go to sleep in the beds in Ikea showrooms. “There may be 10 billion sofas in the world,” the commentator writes, “but only the sofas in your home belong to you.”
