A young asylum seeker Monday allegedly stabbed to death an employee at a refugee center in Sweden as police demanded more resources to stem rising violence linked to the migrant crisis.The attack came as National Police Commissioner Dan Eliasson requested 4,100 additional officers and support staff to help fight against terrorism, carry out migrant deportations and police asylum facilities.According to the Swedish Migration Agency, the number of threats and violent incidents at asylum facilities more than doubled from 2014 to 2015 as Sweden witnessed a record number of migrant arrivals.A country of 9.8 million, Sweden took in more than 160,000 asylum seekers in 2015, putting it among the EU states with the highest proportion of refugees per capita.It has since tightened its asylum rules to curb the migrant flow.
