Hells Angels Compound Attacked

Compiled From Wire Services

A Hells Angels clubhouse in southern Sweden was attacked with an anti-tank grenade and two hand grenades before dawn Saturday, the second assault in a week on the biker compound.

No injuries were reported in the attack in Hasslarp, outside Helsingborg, about 300 miles southwest of Stockholm.

A two-year feud between the Hells Angels and Bandidos gangs in Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway has left at least seven people dead and three dozen injured.

The mayor of Copenhagen ordered the Hells Angels to vacate their walled compound in a residential neighborhood of the Danish capital. The bikers had refused to leave as of Saturday. xxxx
