  • 22-year-old arrested after church shooting

    Police in London have arrested a 22-year-old man after the shooting in north London on Saturday afternoon in which six people were injured, says Sky News.

    A seven-year-old girl suffered life-threatening injuries in the shooting, which occurred outside a Catholic church where a memorial service for two dead women, a mother and daughter, had just ended.

  • Body has been in mortuary for three years

    In 2019, a body came into the morgue in Gothenburg.

    It is still there, reports P4 Gothenburg.

    According to the Funeral Act, a body must be cremated or buried no later than four weeks after death. Why this body has not been buried is still unclear.

    – I can’t actually answer that, because the only thing we can do is send the information to the Tax Authority and then it’s their job to find out if there are any close relatives, says Camilla Sydvart, unit manager for clinical pathology with responsibility for the mortuary, to the radio.

    According to her, it is not simple to bury the body.

    – Who will take responsibility? Is it the municipality, the region, who pays? And so on, she says.

  • Demirok (C): Has not been violent more times

    Muharrem Demirok, who is expected to become the Center Party’s new party leader, participated this evening in SVT’s Agenda.

    There he was asked why he himself did not tell the party’s election committee that he has been convicted of assault twice.

    He allegedly scalped two different people. Once when he was in high school and once when he was 22 and studying at university.

    Demirok was asked if he had been violent more times than the two times he was charged.

    That is, if he mistreated other people who did not report the incidents.

    – No, I don’t have that, he said to SVT.

  • Erdogan’s words after the puppet protest

    During a youth conference in Turkey, President Erdogan commented on the action where a doll representing himself was hung outside Stockholm’s city hall.

    The president demanded that Sweden take measures after the action.

    – If they do not take any measures against this situation in Sweden, it may strain our relations with Sweden even more, he said according to Turkish Yeni Akit.

    The day after the action, Speaker Anderas Norlén’s planned visit to Ankara was cancelled. According to Erdogan, such a visit is out of the question unless Sweden changes its view of Turkey.

    – Our speaker in the assembly refused this visit. As it stands now, this visit will not take place.

  • The gas pipeline in Lithuania repaired

    The gas pipeline between Latvia and Lithuania that exploded on Friday has been repaired.

    This is announced by the gas company Amber Grid in a press release.

    They write that ten meters of the line have been replaced, but they have not let up on the gas yet.

    According to TT, the company has said that the cause of the explosion was probably a technical error linked to damage to the pipeline’s welding joint.

    The explosion occurred near the Lithuanian village of Valakėliė. A massive fire broke out with flames as high as 50 meters.

  • Mexico faces tough smoking ban

    Mexico has introduced a law that makes it completely forbidden to smoke in public places, writes BBC.

    The smoking ban applies to parks, beaches, hotels, offices and restaurants, for example. In principle, you are only allowed to smoke in private homes.

    This means that Mexico now has one of the strictest smoking bans in the world.

    It will also be completely prohibited to advertise tobacco products – cigarettes may not even be seen inside shops.

    Police corruption is widespread in Mexico, and many fear that instead of issuing fines, the police will use the law to accept bribes.
