A teenage asylum seeker living at a refugee centre in Sweden reportedly stabbed to death on Monday a woman working there. 

The 22-year-old woman, who worked at the refugee centre for unaccompanied minors in Sweden's Molndal region, died from her wounds after being rushed to hospital, according to AFP.

While the nationality of the accused is not clear, Swedish media reported he was 15 years old.

The incident is likely to add to the flaring debate on the influx of refugees in Europe, especially in light of several crimes, including rapes, being linked to some asylum seekers.

The murder comes days after 40 cases of rape and sexual assault of teenage girls at the annual music festival in Stockholm over a couple of years came to light this month, in which migrant youths were the accused.

"These kinds of calls are becoming more and more common. We're dealing with more incidents like these since the arrival of so many more refugees from abroad," police spokesman Thomas Fuxborg was quoted as saying by AFP. 

There were 322 cases of violent incidents at refugee centres in Sweden in 2015, according to the Swedish Migration Agency. About 163,000 refugees entered Sweden last year, including 35,369 unaccompanied minors, the agency reported.

The Swedish Police are currently facing an internal investigation over the alleged cover-up of the mass sexual crimes against girls, reportedly by "50 Afghan refugees".
