Swedish soldiers may have died in friendly fire
Two Swedish soldiers killed in Afghanistan last February appear to have been shot with Swedish bullets, according to an investigation by the Swedish Armed Forces.
Officers Gunnar Andersson, Johan Palmlöv, and their Afghan interpreter, Mohammad Shahab Ayoulay, were killed near Mazar-i-Sharif, when an Afghan man dressed in a police uniform opened fire on their patrol.
However now TV4 News reports that the armed forces investigation reveals the bullets matched the caliber of Swedish ammunition and not the gun used by the Afghan man, who was killed in return fire.
The entry points of the bullets also suggest, reports TV 4, that they could have been shot from a nearby Swedish armoured vehicle.
