LONDON -- Residents of Stockholm braced for more violence Friday after five consecutive nights of rioting that have rocked the Swedish capital and shaken the Scandinavian country's self-image as a tolerant, liberal place. Since Sunday, sections of northwestern and southern Stockholm have lighted up with the glow of fires started by rock-throwing rioters apparently protesting a fatal shooting by police last week. Schools, shops, a library and about 150 vehicles have been set ablaze during the nightly rampages, which some commentators say are rooted in feelings of despair and disenfranchisement among the city's poor and its growing immigrant population.

English fans were barred from beer-and-games tents for tonight's England-Sweden soccer game in Stockholm after a third night of violence among English and Swedish youths. Authorities said only low-alcohol beer will be sold at the tents until after the game in an effort to prevent more trouble in the European soccer championships.

Karlheinz Riedle scored two goals and Germany withstood a late surge to beat Sweden, 3-2, clinching a berth for the defending world champions in the final of the European Championship. In next Friday's final at Goteborg, the Germans will meet the winner of today's semifinal between the Netherlands and Denmark. An hour after the game, a man was stabbed and mobs of Swedish and German hooligans roamed Stockholm, chanting, breaking windows and running from police.
