Dad gets visa to say goodbye
A man whose wife and two children died in a train accident in northern Sweden is to be allowed to come to Sweden to pay his last respects and collect their remains.
Originally from Afghanistan, he is currently living as a paperless migrant in Greece, and found it difficult to get a visa from the Swedish authorities to visit. His wife and two small children were killed when they were walking across a level crossing to go to the shops. They were living in a home for asylum seekers in the small town of Trehörningsjö at the time.
Swedish Radio in Västerbotten reports that the man has now been given a temporary visa to come to Sweden.
