Young gamers report getting death threats
One in 10 children have been threatened while playing video games, a Swedish Radio survey shows

.

Swedish Radio spoke to several children who said they have received death threats directed at them or their families while playing games online.

"I killed my friend on Fortnite and he said he would kill me in real life. I’m scared," said one child.

Another recounted: "A guy said he’d come to my house and beat me up." And a third: "He said he’d kill my family."

"This is very serious," said Jan Olsson, head of development at the police’s national IT crimes unit. 

"The child ought to have an adult they can turn to and who can help them take the next step, which may very well be to file a police report."

The survey’s 1,046 respondents are in years six and seven in a number of randomly selected schools around Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö.

Almost half of them said they play video games.
