Problems in police telephone system
The Swedish police telephone system has been hit by technical problems. The main switchboard number (114 14) has suffered most, while police spokesperson Marie Persson says the emergency number 112 is still available.
The police national computer system has also been affected.
The problems began at around 5:00 PM Swedish time, and involve the entire country. At 6:00 PM the police said there was still no indication when the problem would be fixed.
