LO chairman Susanna Gideonsson has previously criticized Coop due to the high food prices.
Now Coop answers.
– Just going and comparing on the edge of the shelf will be incorrect. We have pure flour in the bag and we don’t care, says the food giant’s CEO Marie Nygren, to TT.
Gideonsson believes that Coop’s model of being member-owned should work well in these tough times.
Nygren believes that a pure price comparison does not accurately reflect the situation.
– I agree that our model works: Being member-owned, and our basis is to have good goods at a good price. But I am disappointed that she is speaking without having the facts on the matter, says Nygren.

According to local authorities, the number of boats with migrants trying to reach Italy has increased recently.
In the last four days, Tunisia’s coast guard has stopped about 80 boats with a total of over 3,000 people, the majority of whom should come from sub-Saharan African countries, according to BBCciting Reuters.

NATO after Putin’s nuclear announcement: We are prepared

– NATO is prepared and follows the situation closely. We have not seen any changes in Russia’s approach to the use of nuclear weapons that would cause us to adjust our own.
So says an unnamed spokesperson to Reuters the day after the Russian president announced that he is placing nuclear weapons in Belarus.
According to Putin, the trigger is Britain’s decision to send armor-piercing munitions to Ukraine, which contain depleted uranium. Something that can be equated with NATO’s nuclear weapons expansion in Europe, according to Putin
The statement is dismissed as “completely misleading”, according to the NATO spokesperson.
Ukraine asks for a lightning meeting at the UN after Putin’s announcement.

Unclear what time it is in Lebanon
Right now, Lebanon has two time zones, reports ABC News.
At the last second, the country’s government decided to postpone the start of daylight saving time by a month, until the end of Ramadan.
Something that resulted in mass confusion.
Some institutions in the country, mainly Christian, have implemented daylight saving time, while others have not set the clock forward.
This has resulted in the country now being in two time zones.
– I had a meeting at 8 am and a lesson at 9 am, but now it will take place at the same time, says organization worker Haruka Naito, to the newspaper.
The confusion has also led to jokes about “Muslim times” and “Christian times”.

– It makes it a little more bearable to see how many people she touched, says Ida Kjos i TV4’s Nyhetsmorgon.
– She had a cardiac arrest a week ago. We performed CPR. She had to be put on a respirator and we tried to wake her up again, but then she never came back. That in itself was traumatic.

check Ask your questions to the editors here!
Units still mean vehicles AND crew. Otherwise, they would have said vehicles, which would be useless to deliver to an accident scene without a crew.
Thanks for the clarification! I am also changing the answer below. That’s what I meant, but was a little unclear. 🙂
When you write: the rescue service has sent 8 units, what do you mean? Are they people or vehicles?
Why don’t you write what it is
Hello! By units is meant the number of vehicles, which also includes personnel.
did Aftonbladet miss that Frölunda crushed Ferjestad yesterday ?????????
We certainly haven’t missed that! Here you can read everything about the match!
Why is it not written about the new fungus virus? it goes viral on tik tok and all websites from the US?
Hello! We’ve written about it here, if that’s what you mean!
Saw that there were 2 copper thieves in Värmdö, is there a special brand they are after, have warned my old mother who saves on copper to hide both cups and dishes so don’t open to anyone she doesn’t know
Hi Bengt! We also initially thought about what kind of copper it could be that the thieves tried to steal – but it was the metal copper, and not copper that you drink from, that the thieves were targeting in this case.
