New Caledonia is commonly referred to as a group of idyllic paradise islands in the Pacific Ocean. But now paradise has turned into chaos, says Swedish publication Svenska Dagbladet. 

Deadly riots have broken out. Angry protesters looted shops and burned cars as well as buildings. They also set up roadblocks that stopped the supply of medicine and food, authorities said.
