A Stockholm court Friday ordered that US rapper ASAP Rocky, detained in Sweden on assault allegations, should be kept in custody for another week while the prosecutor completes his investigation.

"The deadline to press charges has been extended to Thursday July 25 at 11 am (0900 GMT). The suspect will until then remain in detention," the district court said in a statement.
