"Right to stop Swedish ground attacks"

Social Democrat party leader Håkan Juholt thinks that last night's Nato-attack that killed members of Colonel Gaddafi's family, shows that the Social Democrats were right when they insisted that Swedish Gripen-planes are not involved in attacks on the ground.

At a press conference in Falun, after his first May Day speech as party leader, he was asked if he did not think it was good if Gaddafi was killed in a Nato-attack, the news agency TT reports. His reply: "no it is not good if Gaddafi, hias son or his grandchildren are killed in a Nato-attack. No children should be killed in war, and war criminals should be arrested and brought to trial."

Juholt defended the Social Democrat position that the Swedish participation in the mission to defend the no-fly zone over Libya should end when the current mandate expired the 1st of July. He said it is an important question of credibility for him to stick to that timeline, in order for him to be able to strike other agreements on international missions, with the government as well as getting his party to agree to it, TT reports.
