Iranian police have arrested the leader of Sweden’s most violent gang, accused of carrying out a spate of fatal bombings and shootings, The Times reported on Monday.

However, Swedish news outlets having circulated audio purportedly of Rawa Majid — nicknamed the Kurdish Fox and head of the Foxtrot gang — denying he had been taken into custody after claims he was caught at the Turkiye-Iran border.

Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson on Monday said he had unconfirmed “intelligence” that Majid had been detained.

Kristersson told Swedish media outlet SVT that “given the outstanding criminal charges against him, this could have a very big impact,” but said he did not want to go into more detail at present.

Sources told SVT that Majid, who was raised in Sweden by Iraqi-Kurdish parents, may have been arrested because he was carrying fraudulent papers.

In 2023 alone, his Foxtrot gang has been linked to dozens of deaths, including civilians caught in the crossfire, in a series of well-orchestrated and bloody turf wars usually carried out by boys as young as 13. Twelve fatalities were reported in September alone.
